      1. There is quite a fashion on instgram for sites detailing “cheap” Irish cottages and houses. I think that rents are so high in places in Dublin that people commute long, long distances. London has been used to such a thing but not in Ireland and it has caused a great deal of anger and frustration and the surprise success of Sinn Feinn in the recent election.

      2. I heard that housing was an issue in the last election, that Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was successful in negotiatinAg Brexit and neglected domestic issues, such as the slump in new housing. Varadkar just resigned after the election losses, Fine Gael coming in third. An hour – hour and a half commute from the Cooley Peninsula is doable…people commute much farther around New York City and in horrible traffic.

      3. Yes, I think that people in Ireland just aren’t used to that sort of commute. I though that Varadkar did very well in the Brexit negoiations but it wasn’t an issue on voters minds. Health Care was also a big concern, there are long waiting times and a shortage of hospital beds (and about 60% have private health insurance, I think).
