What these so called experts ( plagiarists would be more like it ) have so far failed to mine out of GHPC and the PIN is that the growth in empties was MUCH GREATER in the 5 big cities in the intercensal period 2002 -2006 than it was in the evidently grossly overbuilt north shannon basin in the Midlands or elsewhere in the state .

This contradicts any form of economic logic that I can think of .
