Re: Re: Developments in Cork
You claim that prices in Limerick are falling less rapidly than in Cork.This is not true according to the latest quarterly Daft Report http://www.daft.ie/report/Daft-House-Price-Report-Q1-2009.pdf. Have a look at page 4 – Limerick City prices are -5.5% compared to -4.8% in Cork City. Limerick City and property prices are falling faster than Cork prices:
Limerick County prices are -4.1% compared to -1.2% in County Cork.
No doubt you’ll have some strange subjective interpretation…
Clare itself is going to grow faster imo than either Cork or lImierick in the next cenus
– In your opinion – your opinions are irrelevant – it didn’t grow more quickly than Cork, in fact the growth was considerably less in the last census so what has changed?
Either way It’s iimportant that the three centres, Limerick, Cork and Galway to grow.
Mickeydocs, Limerick has a booming tourist industry at the moment.
– So your answer to the loss of thousands of jobs is tourism and higher education – you must work for fianna fail to come up with such great solutions. I can really see assembly workers from Limerick housing estates lecturing on quantum physics :rolleyes:
Limerick has huge commercial power pullling from both Galway and Cork. Take the Cresent for example thats has a catchment for shoppers from Both cities and not just Limerick
– I don’t know of anyone from Cork that goes to Limerick to shop… why would we when there is an abundance of out of town centres on a par with Crescent (Mahon Point, Douglas)??? I would go to London to shop, and the Dundrum shopping centre isn’t bad… but the Crescent, give me a break!
Well for 2007
The Daft report states this
Limerick 11% year on change, Quater on quarter change 1.6%
Cork 5.61% year on change quarter on quarter change 0.6%
Galway 0.8% year on change, quater on quarter change -2.0%
More than double the growth than Cork and 9 times the growth of Galway.
I’ll check 2008 later…. 🙂
I know at least 4 people in person who go to Limerick to shop and alot go to the Crescent. When travelling up North of Lot of people stop in Limerick if travelling to Galway etc… Very surpised as a Corkonian you don’t know anyone lol.. hmmm
