Anymore Media or political contact details add them here.

oh and


Yesterday I emailed all the current FG TD’s. I have not yet received any response.
This morning I will forward this to all the Labour TDs.
Later today I will send a similar mail will go to all the FF, PD and Green TDs.

On Monday morning I will forward the same mails to the same people and will continue doing so every day until I get a response.


A small point, but will your average tee-dee know what “FWIW” means?


I would send it to the shinners as well because they’ll use any excuse to have a pop in de dail, but only send it if its easily understandable. :angry:


In respect of the 40K salary threshold and the 285K borrowing limit Finneran last night said on Today FM that this are the extremes and that someone on 40K could not borrow the full amount He said it would be capped at 35% of disposable income.

I didn’t do any figures though to see what that works out at.


I also heard that interview. Finneran really had trouble defending the claims and counter claims of Matt Cooper. However the 35% of Net income Rule could be what kills this scheme. If that is the case the banks will surely be able to match it. Hey presto no-one bothers to take up the scheme.
Incdentally, in france you cannot get a mortgage that will take more than 30% of your net monthly income without breaking the laws. Who would have thought…respsonible banking!


Or dare I say it, responsible Government :question:



I have received your email and I have taken note of your comments.

Kind regards

Ive emailed Sinn Fein looking for a list of contact details. If anyone can direct me to their info online post a link and I`ll include them.

Anyone else ? Who am I missing?


Thank you for your comments regarding property prices and related matters.
I will personally present your observations to the Minister and will respond more fully then.

Exhibit 1


It would seem none of them have worked this one out yet…


Ok folks, it’s *not cool *to post someone else’s email onto a public forum without their knowledge or permission, no matter how innocuous. I don’t think we care too much about the text, as long as it’s not personally identifiable.

Just like when Pinsters are drafting up these emails they leave their own real names and email addresses out of it, I think it’s fair to afford the same courtesy to any replies you might receive to those emails.

The posting guidelines have been amended.


I’ve gone back to Senator Dan Boyle of the Greens, who told me around the time of the protest that the media were exaggerating the plans for any housing initiative. Considering it turned out exactly as I listed it in the initial query I’m interested in what he has to say…if anything.


I’ve emailed local TD’s to no avail, also sent a mail to Lenihan. No reply either.


Apologies for posting an email response. Didn’t occur to me at the time, but you are of course right.


I agree with the letter that you have sent to the TDs, and I applaud you for doing it, but you should try and correct the many spelling errors in it before you send it out to anyone else


Well my 4 local TDs will not be getting anything from me in the future… their replies when they did arrive, were inadequate…
Roll on the next elections … I can’t wait.


A reply from the Greens
Many thanks for your email this morning and I am sorry that you are concerned about the Home Choice Loan Scheme (I’m presuming you were referring to that). I can assure you the Green Party does not intend inflating the housing market or cushioning any property developers through this measure. This scheme has replaced the Local Authority Mortgage scheme was in operation for many years. The Home Choice Loan scheme will provide a line of credit for middle income earners. It will provide a mortgage of up to 92% for people earning a minimum of €40,000 per annum. The maximum loan given will be no more than €285,000. All money loaned will be calculated on 35% of the disposable income of the purchaser and will be stress tested to ensure, insofar as possible, that applicants will not have difficulties in meeting payments into the future.Traditionally, benefit schemes for first time purchasers have been associated with newly built houses. In addition to this, over the past number of years 70% of first time buyers have purchased a new house, while at the moment second owned homes are 15% more expensive than newly built houses. Due to these many reasons, the Home Choice Loan scheme has been targeted at newly built houses. The normal commercial rates will apply to any loan given.
I hope this provides some clarification of the intent of the scheme. If there is anything else you would like clarification on please do not hesitate to contact me.
Yours sincerely,
