Home prices on the country’s two more expensive streets will fall more than anywhere else in Ireland and possibly the world, according to a report in the Sunday Tribune. After setting global records during the boom years, they will tumble more than 70% from their 2006 peak, analysts predict.
In a double-page spread devoted to this story, the newspaper details the denizens who own homes on Ailesbury and Shrewsbury roads. Needless to say, they read like a who’s who of Irish business in the Celtic Tiger era. They include Derek Quinlan, Sean Dunne, Paul Coulson, Larry O’Mahony, Paddy Kelly and Niall O’Farrell.
It would appear the ‘hood is changing fast.
