In Dublin in 2006 there were 162,000 zoned and serviced sites, 19,470 new homes were built in the Greater Dublin Area in that year. Possibly between ten and twelve years supply of zoned land in Dublin, according to Dan White. So no supply issue then.
Can I suggest the Pinsters get writing. Explain to your local TD and to Ahern (cough, splutter, pooh) the disadvantages for the electorate of rich individuals hoarding land in OUR country. I’m gonna do it. I won’t sign BertieBasher though.
