    -> , name
    -> , phone
    -> , CASE
    ->     WHEN SUBSTRING(phone,1,1)='0'
    ->         THEN CONCAT('(353)',SUBSTRING(phone,2))
    ->     ELSE phone
    ->   END as phone2
    -> FROM contact;

You can use UPDATE query like this

UPDATE table_name SET phone = CONCAT('353',TRIM(LEADING '0' FROM phone)) WHERE SUBSTRING(phone,1,1) = '0';

before that use the SELECT query to check if its correct or not

SELECT phone, CONCAT('353',TRIM(LEADING '0' FROM phone)) FROM table_name WHERE SUBSTRING(phone,1,1) = '0';

hope this will find you helpful
