The Last Word on Today FM: What about property prices after covid19?

We were guests on Matt Cooper’s ‘The Last Word’ show on Today FM along with Marian Finnegan the MD of SherryFitzgerald’s residential business to discuss the residential property market and how it might work out in the wake of the covid19 pandemic.

Marian gave good analysis as you’d expect, Karl was pointing out that supply shortages would persist despite any changes that may occur in prices, the reasons for this being that the dynamics that existed prior to it hadn’t changed.

Good Grub: When the going gets rough, help those less fortunate than you.

Some people decide that when the going gets rough, they’ll help those less fortunate than themselves, nothing can be more spiritually reaffirming than this type of attitude.

Denis Reilly (oh ate 6 2744727) started a GoFundMe to help raise money so that kids in Deis schools (Deis schools are usually in deprived areas where you get meals as part of your school day) can still access fresh fruit and vegetables. Within a short amount of time they raised over €100,000 and this will help to feed 5,000 families across Dublin for a month.
