Ireland Today: construction

Ireland today is defined by construction. A huge portion of the Irish economy is driven by the residential building trade. An acre of land can go for €50m and up in Dublin. Two rate hikes by the ECB hasn’t dampened Irish interest in owning their own property.

Awesome reflections, love how it’s broken up by the panels of glass. I would be returning to this spot often to shoot if it were near me! What opportunities…

Thanks for the comments! I’m glad I went fixed on my mortgage for the next 2 years! I only wish the Euro-US Dollar exchange rate was more favourable. I’m getting crucified on that!

Micki – you probably didn’t see Matt’s post about him coming to Ireland. I’m getting married in the next few days and the wedding will take place in the chapel behind me when I took this shot!
I have a few photos of it so I may post a shot of it on the day.

How is the property prices doing in Ireland?
btw, I loved the reflection on the glass panel of the building. Great picture!
