Weekly Irish property market news and insights – for the industry, by the industry  

construction marketing and PR

Before we get stuck into the general property news of the week, below are the local and international stories that might be of particular interest: 

  • Property District West: All PR and communications (ghostwriting, social media management, public consultation and community engagement for placemaking) available through Irish from our Galway base in An Cheathrú Rua. Email brid@propertydistrict.ie for further information.
  • An Bord Pleanála has totally lost the confidence of builders, developers, politicians and most important of all the public they are supposed to serve. There is real concern that ineptitude far from being confined to a couple of people is systemic. The question is not whether there is a problem. It is how big is the problem and whether it is curable. ..” https://www.con-telegraph.ie/2022/08/22/planning-system-facing-an-appaling-vista-west-td/

As always, you might let me know if I have missed out on any relevant property news by emailing  carol@propertydistrict.ie.

(Apologies in advance for any typos, it’s difficult to get good help on a Sunday. Also, I use voice to text dictation so just sound out anything that really doesn’t make sense in a strong rural accent and that should help!)
