Default transiting in heathrow en route to dublin..urgent help needed!!!

I'm from malaysia and am taking a flight from Singapore to London Monday night on a British Airways flight which is operated by Qantas, arriving at 0620 on Tuesday, after which I am scheduled for another British Airways codeshare flight, Aer Lingus, to Dublin which is to depart at 0750. That leaves me with at most 1.5 hours to move from terminal 1 to terminal 4.

Do I have enough time for that??? And I just found out that I have to pass through passport/immigration control before taking my connecting flight!!!! Is this immigration counter the same as all passengers entering the UK use? If so, I think I'm going to have a problem with the timing!!! I booked all my flights through BA so I guess I should be able to check in my luggage (and myself) all the way from Singapore straight to Dublin??? Do I have to pass through immigration once again in Dublin Airport?

after passing through immigration, do I have to check in again for my flight to dublin?? I'm seriously confused...and WORRIED. Thanks for any help!!!!

It will be a little tight, but get your bag checked through and talk
to the cabin staff in your first flight, and they'll hopefully get you
into the fast track through both immigration and the T1 security,
which would mean 1.5 hours is more than enough.

No, there are no immigration formalities between the UK and Ireland,
it's a common travel area - one country's immigration procedures is good
for the other.

after passing through immigration, do I have to check in again for my
flight to dublin?? I'm seriously confused...and WORRIED. Thanks for any
help!!!!

You should have, the baggage can be checked through and
immigration is usually pretty quick.

Dont worry , even if the worst happens and you miss the flight
BA will put you on the next plane and there are several flights a day
