Sunday Property Round-Up April 17th, 2022

 

Weekly Irish property market news and insights – for the industry, by the industry  

 

Before we get stuck into the general property news of the week, below are the local and international stories that might be of particular interest: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • How ridiculous is this? ’Coastal Cork holiday home ruled too remote for refugee accommodation’: Since Covid-19 lockdowns… Clonakilty’s Long Strand is quite the hot spot. But, an offer to accommodate Ukrainian refugees at this holiday home hasn’t been accepted as it’s too isolated https://www.irishexaminer.com/property/residential/arid-40851425.html

 

 

 

 

 

  • That’s Farming editor, Catherina Cunnane, in conversation with Josh Pim, Co Laois, in this week’s Career Focus segment. We discuss his equine roots, “falling” into a career in property, securing a position with Savills, and selling a property for 32% above its guide price of €1.6 million.  https://thatsfarming.com/beef/savills-country-estate/

As always, you might let me know if I have missed out on any relevant property news by emailing  carol@propertydistrict.ie.

 

(Apologies in advance for any typos, it’s difficult to get good help on a Sunday. Also, I use voice to text dictation so just sound out anything that really doesn’t make sense in a strong rural accent and that should help!)
