    OMG, that’s, loike, classic Katie. Classic.
    And she’s from Golway, you know?

    Seriously, though, €855k for a two-bed “cottage”?

    There’s no intervening lobby between the toilet and the living area. OMG the potential smell of discharge while you fry up your vegan steak for your So CoCo friends would be just too much.

      That’s a serious projector and sound system! Think of all the TV licence fees you’d save. It would probably pay for itself in 10 years.

    Might be unfair to judge, but there’s not a single, solitary book to be seen in the whole house.

        How gauche. Much better to display your library and rub your guests’ noses in it.
        Oh, so you haven’t tackled the entire Murakami oeuvre? Interesting. *titter*

        I’m great craic at parties.

            I need help
            I had images of ladies staring at dead wood that probably are not the image you were trying to convey

            Feet yep, especially hard skin.
            Dirty nails.
            People drinking out of dirty mugs in work.
            People wearing the same shirt two days in a row.
            People not washing their hands after a wee.
            Dirty trainers & shoes.
            Eye contact.
            Shaking hands.
            I suppose really touching people and people touching me.
            People in general really, nothing too odd :)

    Conversation in the pub, some time around 2040:

    ‘Ye know Cabáiste was actually conceived in the back of a mini … and in his mom’s kitchen, at the same time?!? [chortle chortle]’

    the estate agent’s description:

    “No stone has been left unturned in the design of this fabulous home…”

    I’d punch whoever wrote that in the face for those 13 words alone

    Clever move; giving the house a name rather than next door’s number with an A added – much classier eh?

          Originally I was thinking yes – they would be more expensive. But if you look at the whole country I’d imagine that houses with numbers are prominently in the cities, whereas named houses are one-offs and would be more country. Cities are dearer than country so an average numbered house (city) is more expensive than named (rural) house.

          At a local level – the named house is more expensive than the numbered one. But nationally I’d say the opposite is true.

        It’s one of those undeniable rules –
        Like people running in their LinkedIn profiles are always poxes.

      i’m willing to be corrected here, but once heard there is a bit of a tax write off if you give your house an Irish name in the land registry? anyone else heard that?

      1. millie st murderlark

        I had not. But that would be gas.

        Same maybe applied once upon a time to naming your house after a saint?

    I have a question? How do you get the mini couch out of the house? I don’t think it’ll fit through the front door or side entrance…
