Exactly 18 months behind the curve in the south. I knew it. I fecking told them. Score yet another win for Uncle Sidey’s Crazy Predictions.

One of my best friends asked me for advice as to whether he should buy in the North while already highly leveraged into his own residence in Dublin,

When I replied “Do you not know that property has gone up by 50% there last year” (implying risky bubble), he replied:

“Thats exactly why I WOULD buy” :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :unamused:

With attitudes like this?
