Where can I get my iPod fixed?

I have a first generation iPod which no longer charges. It is long out of warranty. I have opened it up and found that the FireWire port has 'come unstuck'. Apparently this is a common problem with these iPods.
As far as I can make out, the rest of the iPod works fine. It'd be handy to have it functioning again. I'm thinking of repairing it but I don't want to spend a lot of money on it. I also don't want to repair it and have it fail again.
Do people have much experience with these repairs? Do they last? Are there any reliable repair companies based in Ireland or the UK? Shipping the iPod to the US and back will probably add a lot to the cost of repair.
