Hi Michael

Thanks again for doing the commentary.

Incidentally, might I say, I particularly like the term "cottage industry", with its both positive and negative connotations, as a description of the Irish rental market.


Thanks for raising this issue again. Having lived in Amsterdam for several years, Irish rental laws are virtually barbaric. The 'civilized world' recognizes that not everyone can or will buy their home, so it's possible to rent your home for life (and often onto the next generation).

It took great effort to bring into force the Tenancies Board, along with some new legislation. Who were the main players?

If you and others are interested in taking this project further, please count me in!
