      The rents are gone crazy in D8. My brother is in the process of renting his apartment out. He put it up on daft for €1150 he’s had about 300 calls in the first few days, he took it down and has it back up for €1300 and still loads of calls. Jesus in the height of the boom I was only paying €850.

          Hey now, if it’s OK for Luas drivers, trian drivers and bus drivers to strike or threaten strikes for more money why isn’t it OK for Anomanomanom’s brother to look for a few extra bob for himself too? It could be argued that you’re just jealous and looking to oppress Anomanomanom’s brother to satisfy your own begrudgery.

            I didn’t say it wasn’t ok. I just said it was the type of behaviour that is contributing to the problem we face.

          Well clearly there is no problems because hundreds can afford it, so if supply is not enough move out of the city and use your saved money on travel cost. Simple

            No he wasn’t forced, he’d just be a complete moron not to do it. As I said 100’s had called and could afford it no problem. And the same when he put the rent higher.

          How so? Same as a 5 star hotel costing more than a b&b. Are a pub in temple Bar charging more than a normal local. They charge the upper market price because 1000s can afford it and will pay it and get what they can afford. If you can’t afford D8 or similar city location then live in ballymun or talk agar and bus it to work.

          Anne, direct your ire towards Fine Gael/ Labour please.

          If the owner of this property has a mortgage (which he probably has), he’s paying twice the European average on mortgage interest AND 50% of his profit to the government.

          Also, Alan Kelly spent most of last year banging his rent cap drum while knowing that this would be unconstitutional. He admitted as much on tv last night.

          Oh but it’s easier to pick on someone who got off his ass and tried to make a few quid ins’t it!

    Even assuming this is a type-o and its meant to be €1,500, this is still a complete rip off.

      I work around the corner from it. Have done for over a decade. I wouldn’t walk there late at night
