Meanwhile, In Leo Street

Luke McManus tweetz:

€4200pm for an 86 sq metre house in Phibsboro with “six” bedrooms… If the street sounds familiar, it’s where @campaignforleo launched his leadership bid. Doubt he’s been back since…

      The ad actually says ‘berdroom’ which obviously means something entirely different.

      Cheers graven, I’m thinking better about my £60 per week 2 bed apartment on the Lisburn Road in Belfast.

        Hmm. if you look at just the area of beds it’s 19.3 sq M – or a quarter of the floor area!!
        2 x 0.9×1.9m = 3.42
        4 x 1.4×1.9m = 15.95

    My dad rented one of those houses in the 70s for 40 quid a a week. So, in 30/40ish years, it’s now quite a lot more. They’re still quite smallish, if you consider 86 sm, small? 6 beds, really, not really. Maybe there’s a talented architect involved?
