At least when they make the film about the Irish property bubble they won't have to build the set ... :wink:

Some of you may have noticed that the site was down over the past 48 hours or so. The server hosting the server had a terminal hard drive failure (cheap dedicated server, single disk).However, I had nightly backups of the data which have now been restored and everything is back to normal.

It's now hosted on fully redundant infrastructure (2 MySQL servers, 2 front end web servers and an F-5 BIG-IP LTM :)) so hopefully there won't be a repeat.

Five shower units were taken from houses in a recently developed estate in Tarmonbarry over the weekend. The houses have yet to be occupied and local gardai have warned developers to secure their sites as burglaries have occurred on newly developed sites in Rooskey and Carrick-on-Shannon.


The first of many I expect.

Was doing a triathlon in Connemara this weekend.

Came across a fully built moth balled estate in (very rural) Carna on my cycle.

I have no idea how long they had been built but they looked all set to move in if the place wasn't all boarded up.

Created by the 'pin user, Nemonoid, this is an intriguing possibility to document the worst outcomes of the bubble on the internets...

It would be useful if the Ghost Estates site contained some commentary, similar to that which appears in the thread.

Just been around this estate today http://www.daft.ie/searchnew_development.daft?id=6061
which is in Rosses Point, Sligo - very disappointing location and I don't know why they rave about it! Anyway, I would say that fewer than 10% of houses were occupied - and it was a very big estate of probably more than 70-80 houses.

A passing workman told me that they were all (but 4 or 5) bought off plans 3 years ago (presumably by people looking to turn a quick profit) and it struck me very much as a ghost estate. Actually went into one of the detached ones and it had 4 wee pokey rooms upstairs each with an ensuite! I don't care if it was in malibu, I still wouldn't give 750k for it.

Talk to nemonoid but I think the idea is there would be no commentary, just pictures...
