(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!)


SUNDAY LISTEN – iProperty Radio


Later this month, iProperty Radio celebrates 5 years of broadcast! What started as a one-hour radio show for the industry, airing live from Dublin every week, is now the global hub for radio shows, podcasts and video interviews focusing on the built environment. 


By embracing creation, rather than fearing competition, we brought some of the very best industry content together in one place and the channel now features shows on resi and commercial real estate, proptech, construction, sustainability and placemaking, from Ireland, the UK, Mainland Europe, America and Australia – the uniting theme is one of innovation and a shared mission to spread interesting ideas that have the potential to transform the built environment for the better. 


Producer Katie Tallon and all the team at Property District are excited to unveil the new Construction Leader series on ‘Breaking Ground’ for 2024 – we look forward to hearing from the visionaries and changemakers shaping our skylines and serving communities (there will be a special focus on recruitment challenges and attracting new talent into the industry).


Huge thanks to all of the show hosts, production teams, expert guests, brave innovators who dare to do things differently, and a special word of thanks to YOU the industry for demonstrating your support though every view, listen and download – we appreciate every single one! 


Looking at the Irish marketplace, Property District is ending 2023 with an average of 1.5+ million digital impressions PER MONTH across our brands, including iProperty Radio, Irish Real Estate and Breaking Ground – Ireland’s Construction hub, which is huge for this industry. Thank you. And if you are toying with the idea of a new podcast or video show in 2024 that will add value to the industry, contact to discuss a strategy.
