Exodus: Movement of Jah people!

Several TDs have been selling off their properties as house prices skyrocketed over recent years, it can be revealed.

High-profile TDs off-loaded additional properties they own while house prices were hitting record prices.

Details of the property sales emerged during the two-month long Political Rich List investigation which revealed the wealth and assets held by the country’s most senior politicians.

Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney sold a quayside apartment in Cork for €325,000 in 2019, according to the Property Price Register.

Mr Coveney is one of the Dáil’s richest TDs ranked ninth on the Political Rich List with an estimated value of €2.5m due to his significant pension and property values.

Former Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan sold a Dublin city centre apartment last year for €344,000

Labour Party leader Alan Kelly sold a house in the Dublin suburbs where he once lived for €285,000. Mr Kelly bought the property at the height of the Celtic Tiger years and did not make a profit from its sale last year.
