Sunday Property Round-Up May 30th, 2021


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:









  • O’Brien to delay ‘use it or lose it’ rule for planning: Department of Housing fears that cancelling planning permission could lead to delays in construction, as a new application could take up to a year to be granted


  • O’Dea quits as chairman of property fund and sells shares in firm: The long-serving Limerick Fianna Fáil TD says he will also sell his shares in Formation Group, following revelation of its links to bulk-buying of houses





  • *INSTITUTIONAL Funds Target Farms After Being Deterred By New Housing Bulk-Buy Limits   [*incorrect terminology removed]









  If you missed last week’s round-up, you can catch up here:    As always, you might let me know if I have missed out on any relevant property news by emailing   (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!)
