Imagine in this day and age buying a property based on it being a Catholic V Protestant area. Talk about being backward!

Some good sized towns along the east coast that will give you a great quality of life in my opinion are Greystones in County Wicklow which is head and shoulders above anything else, Gorey and Wexford town (I would say that of course!)

Back to business, there has been a sizeable sell off Chinese equities today and yesterday that is not very widely reported as yet. Guess who has been buying into asset bubbles in recent years? The level of debt in China is now at unprecedented levels as they have been busy investing at home but more importantly overseas especially in US Tech and Global Property (in particular Australia, NY & London). This may be the start of something very big inmho.

Hi Torquay - good to hear from you!

I would recommend two parts of Ireland!

One area I know better than the other....

1) North of the border along the coast from Warrenpoint. Some nice places to live there and but I would avoid a place that is too small as it can be quite isolating. I think you need to be close to a decent sized town.

2) Derry is also a good centre. You can get a nice coastal property on the foyle. The west bank is Catholic and the west east bank is Protestant. It DOES make a differnce around this neck of the woods although many new communities/schemes can be mixed.

The key reason I recommend NI is that you stay within the 'UK system', which you know!
Also in NI you have access to the UK heathcare system which is excellent.

The healthcare system in the ROI is a nightmare by comparison!!!!

House prices in Derry are very reasonable.

Derry is a good centre with lots going on but you have quick access to Donegal which has to be the best county in Ireland, by a long shot!

Consider on the outskirts of the city, either side of the river but not in the city itself.

The advantage of living on the border is that you get to sample the best of both worlds (North and South)!!!

I'm not sure if you have changed your sterling into euros yet but I think about it carefully before I did....

hello all

We are landed here and on the hunt for property - have not looked in for the last week to see that our share has developed a slow puncture.
Cannot understand why - this country seems to be flying - in the time that it took us to pack up and get here we lost four houses in Gorey that I had expressed an interest in. We are still well able to cope with the prices but do not want to move our into the isolation of the countryside when we aren't used to it.
Radar will wonder what tablets I'm taking - he just won't believe that I have cereal and toast for breakfast - and have still done almost 1500 miles in the week.
The banks are certainly doing their job of getting increasing numbers onto their hook, which is not surprising when ALL rentals seem to start at 1,000 a month, this has to be an incentive to anyone to buy - parting with all that dead money.
The roads are busy and the cars that are now driven here strike me as being quite plush and their seem to be millions of them around Dublin, where we endured a London style congestion on our way down from the North on Monday evening.
We have more or less decided that we will investigate the north more closely, whilst not finally deciding against the south. Property in the north on the whole, does seem to be more realistically priced for the kind of property that we want in a coastal location.
Once we have settled " I WILL NEVER MOVE AGAIN" it is probably our age but we have have both been whacked by the experience.
Called in BOI for some Euro's and left - the queue must have been 30 strong and cashier on duty - AIB had two cashiers on duty and two people in the queue.
Will report in again when I have some more news - when hopefully our dullards have come to their senses and at least raised the white flag over the House of Commons - nobody over here can understand the stupidity.

Good luck and X4 - you are not forgotten.

That's the problem,, Cameron wasn't thinking straight and was completely bamboozled by Farage and Ukip - look at them now. If he had only called their bluff, at worst there might have been another election. I have been in this share from 2008 and 2022 is my end date. GLA

Share price will go up once the Brits get their house in order. They won't go on forever like this. A mutually beneficial agreement is surely would hope!! Mind you, it'd take off like a rocket if they re-ran that referendum. What was Cameron thinking??
