I’d like to be able to text my friend in Ireland, his texts are coming in but my texts are not sending. It says I need to change something in my usage control but I can’t usage control on my settings to allow roaming abroad

It'll cost you 55p to send a standard text to Ireland.
If you can't select "Call abroad and premium rate" under manage my devices in MyEE you will probably have to contact EE and ask.
Have you considered whatsapp or imessage or other data based apps?

If you are texting to Ireland from the UK you are not roaming. These count as International texts & are chargeable.
International calls & texts to overseas nos. from UK can be rather expensive but EE has a free add-on that anyone, on PAYG or contract, can apply for to give these calls & texts at a fraction of the standard rates. See The Free CALL ABROAD Add-on for Cheap Calls/Texts from UK . Texts to Ireland will cost 18p if you are on contract or 10p on PAYG.
