If you had €276m, you could buy 55,200 used mobile homes at a average price of €5000 and I’m sure on volume you could drive a hard bargain!
That could easily house about 165,000 people if 3 people per mobile home. Own toilet. Cooking facilities. Great outdoors, wha’t not to like? YOu’d probably get a specula welfare subvention to keep you in cover.
So say bulk buy, that’s 110,400 mobile homes at €2500 a pop, 3 peeps per tin can, 331,200 - push the edge of human living conditions and ramp that up to 4.5 peeps per box, you’d house about 496,800 souls overnight and need to order a new sign that read - Mosneyopolis One.
'Course the way this would work in Ireland is used mobile homes would suddenly be worth about quarter of a million each, maybe a tribunal after 20 years, a bailout and… well, I digress…
Q: how many people have been accommodated with this €276m over the 4 years, to get a cost per person type figure like, any ideas?
