    Crying chairS. Even better to have a second chair facing you, empty as the day is long. To really hammer home the unbearable tragedy that is your lonely, expensive life.

    If you take the average rent per value yield for D7 you can see the owner values this property somewhere around 113k. I wonder how many rooms they can get into one building.

    it rattles me how they refer to these as studio apartments. like we can see the photos, calling it that won’t make you believe it’s anything else other than a tiny showbox with no cooker.

    Microwave on a windowledge. Plug out the radiator to use.

    There used to be a ‘report’ button on daft but I think they got rid of it..

    “It’s getting dark, should we pull down the blinds?”
    “Yeah, just hang on a minute and I’ll move the microwave off the windowsill. Fancy another pot noodle? The kettle’s just boiled..”

    Laws for renters do not matter. They’re on about more granular speed fines now.. that can come in no bother, but landlords gouging well above the 4%, ara tis only a guideline..

    sh*tholes like this to rent, gouge away.

    i’ve seen worse. and it does at least have a 2-seater crying sofa, so you can pay for someone to come over and hold your hand.

    The problem is not private landlords trying to make as much money as they can from their investment but a chronic lack of affordable social housing.
    Couple that with Ireland’s growing number of immigrants and what you’ve got are the early stages of Irexit.
    All you need is a great orator and charismatic personality – a Nigel O’Farage – to tap into the growing frustrations and resentment and it’ll be up and running.
    Mark my words.

      I’m no fan of the EU but I think you’d be hard pressed to find a way to blame them. We don’t even take a lot of immigrants.

      1. Ollie Cromwell

        Net immigration of 20k per annum.
        So in the last 5 years have there been new houses,hospital beds,school places etc for 100,000 people ?
        And in another 5 years time where will the extra 100,000 be looked after.
        Ireland is being changed,irrevocably,by stealth.

          “Ireland is being changed,irrevocably,by stealth.”

          Ireland isn’t “changing” by stealth its happening right out in the open and it’s a fabulous thing to behold. Ireland is emerging from decades of oppression and repression by both church and state and the diversity brought about by immigrants is a big help to that process. It’s only people like you who think that diversity is a bad thing but thankfully you’re in a minority which is getting smaller as time goes by.

          1. Ollie Cromwell

            I’m all in favour of diversity,old cock.
            But diversity needs a roof over his head,school places for his children and a hospital bed if he gets sick.
            Good luck with that

          2. millie st murderlark

            I’ll bet it has nothing to do with the population boom we’ve experienced in the past ten or fifteen odd years while there has been little to no investment into housing, health, transport and infrastructure until very recently.

            Nothing at all to do with that.

          3. Nigel

            He’s in favour of diversity he’s just warning that a reactionary right-wing xenophobic backlash could be magnified and manipulated into a populist movement that could bring about something stupid and disastrous like Brexit. Thanks for the warning Ollie.

          4. realPolithicks

            “But diversity needs a roof over his head,school places for his children and a hospital bed if he gets sick.”

            So all of these issues are caused by immigrants? Only in the bigoted world that you inhabit.

          5. diddy

            I don’t think he said that,, language schools to take one example are importing thousands of wonderful non EU students. Not sure of the net figures but their presence is felt. All need a place to live along with Irish and EU punters. THERE ARE NO LIMITS OR QUOTAS. of course this is going to affect housing

          6. Nigel

            Or to put it another way, our scuttered housing is affecting it, like it affects lots of things.

    2. Nigel

      Weird you’d admit that Brexit is driven by reactionary xenophobia and crooked property tycoons, but ok, it;s a definite risk in these conditions.

      Speaks volumes that charger thinks Farage is a “charismatic personality”, oh, Mrs. Salmons must be kicked altogether.

      1. Rob_G

        Ah now – I could not disagree more with his policies, but Farage seems like a bit of craic. Always smoking fags and drinking pints of bitter with the lads – I’d much rather go for a pint with him than Varadker or Theresa May.

    High standard?.. Not even the cop-on to put the beer and lady-petrol fridge next to the couch…

    Shameful notions of feng-shui…

    Stoneybatter? Has anyone tried to drive there? It takes an hour from Stephen’s Green by car. I’ve timed it – St. Stephen’s to Stoneybatter over 7 trips – it ranges from 2 and one half hours to 45 minutes. Clearly, my life isn’t very full.

    1. Shayna

      …Also, I think the hanging fold-chair on the wall is perhaps a feature? It could be expanded from, rocking to full-blown crying.

    2. Rob_G

      You would think that around the 4th trip you would have thought about taking a bike for the next 3…
