You don’t even need money to buy property these days.
This is a good time to invest.
It’s always a good time to buy.
Ireland is different.
We’re punching above our weight.
We are where we are.
This is a new paradigm.
The fundamentals of the economy are sound.
There will be a soft landing.
Our Irishness gives us a distinct selling point.
We’re in a period of adjustment.
This is not about apportioning blame.
We all lost the run of ourselves.
My conscience is a million per cent clear.
The economy has turned the corner.
We need to stop talking the economy down.
It’s all the media/Lehmans’/cheap-shot commentators’/ Twitter’s fault.
At least we’re not Iceland.
At least we’re not Spain.
At least we’re not Greece.
While we are where we are, at least we’re not where we were . . .
