Which goes back again to the greatest snail pace in this country, the probate crowd.

Another shower of leech public servants.

I know of a house on the South Douglas Road that is laying empty and literally falling down for the last 60 odd years at this stage.

Rox, you said previously that you felt sorry for the people next door to The Manhattan, what is it ?
The Manhattan needs to be developed, I'd like to see something done there like what was done with the Barbers site, which is now two decent houses.

Some tech company have announced that they're moving into Cork. Good news story surely?

But nah all the comments on Facebook are "where are going to live?" and "are they bringing sleeping bags?"

One person even said that companies are buying up houses for their staff and driving up rents in the process. Give me one example of this happening in Cork ffs

Another said that Sheila's Hostel is full of tech workers. What tech worker take a job that requires them to move to Ireland and live in a hostel?

I would not take much notice of what is on Facebook, any idiot can post on that and by God they do so in force.

Heard an item on radio earlier re middle aged renters who when they hit retirement age will still be renting
How in the name of god can they afford to do so? It is a terrible prospect,

I don't know the outs and ins of it all, but in Germany and Austria (and I'd imagine many other countries), home ownership is nowhere near as prominent as it is here and its quite normal for pensioners to live in rental accommodation for their whole life.

I know that security of tenancy is one element, but I'm not sure how it works from an affordability perspective. Perhaps they pay reduced rents linked to their pension?

Either way we can forget about ever having a system like that here as long as stupid cunts are objecting to apartment developments because it obstructs their view of the pub.
