A two-bed terraced house in East Wall, Dublin 3.
East Wall’s gentrification continues. The soon-to-happen move by tech giant Facebook, from south of the river in established and international-in-feel Hanover Quay north to East Wall, a proper Dublin community with a personality riveted together by its hardworking docker heritage.
… Property prices are rising rapidly but none have quite scaled the heights of 107 Church Road. This property sold for €135,500 in June 2015.
The house needed complete modernisation and it was Adrian Richards of Claremont Construction who extended it by adding a two-storey extension, making it about a third bigger. He says he’s spent €200,000 on the refurbishment. It now measures 192sq m/2,066sq ft and is back on the market, asking €525,000.
Richards has 25 years’ experience in flipping houses.

A trainee football coach, who was caught with a stolen monkey in a cage in the back of his car, has been ordered to carry out community service to avoid a jail term.
Paul Murtagh (aged 29) of Birchdale Park, Kinsealy, Co Dublin, and Lighthouse Apartments, East Wall, Dublin 1, pleaded guilty yesterday (MON) to possessing “one common South American Marmoset” worth €1,500.
He was caught with the animal at Ravensdale Road, East Wall, Dublin on October 1 last year, hours after it had been taken during a burglary in Co. Kildare.
