Weren’t there anecdotes of countries selling their embasseys in Tokyo?
they’re not selling the embassy, just the ambassador’s residence in Dalkey
This is getting a laughably large amount of press in Canada, with ex ambassador after ex ambassador being rolled out to say its a disgrace etc, etc, selling the family Jewels etc… They are selling one house in Ireland, they are selling 10’s of properties in London, where they have a LOT of property. It makes sense to dispose now, or they should have 18 months ago. !! Most overseas embassies are going “lean” anyhow in order to extend their footprint with smaller operations.
