A billboard for a new boutique hotel, in place of the old Parliament Hotel reflects the style (but with a little more clothing) of advertising used to promote the Belmayne development on the Malahide Road, during the height of the Celtic Tiger excess.

That development is now subject to the same poor building issues which affects so many of the homes built during that period….

It’s official we are back. And  by ‘we’ I mean homeowners and landlords

Two reports out today, one from the central bank to let us know that some people in Ireland are wealthier then they were during the boom thanks to the rapid recovery in house prices (**breaks out the Bolly**)

The other report from Daft.ie stating that for those unfortunate enough not to own a home that rents have risen by an incredible 70% and are now 23% higher than Celtic Tiger peak (**cries into avocado toast**)

We’ve moved from a country for developers to a country for landlords.

This madness must end.
