houses in a city center ? what a joke
Semi-detached at that, even priory park on Clancy Strand boasts a bungalow skyline! Whereas in the outskirts of the city (Annacotty), seven kilometres away there are apartments built on the banks of the Mulcair river (Shannon tributary). Though as Vkid points out the commercial city centre is on the right side and on the left itâ€™s residential. See post second image.
Needless to say low density building is no longer environmentally sustainable in Ireland and a waste of scarce resources near city centre cores. Speaking of low population density building, well nearby the Bishopâ€™s house has come onto the market with itâ€™s 6.4 acre backyard. It would be an even bigger joke if they are speculating that Aidan Brookes might buy it for private use (i.e. space to graze the childrenâ€™s Shetland pony).:rolleyes: Though anyone who plans to build a sensible density apartment development here will run into hefty opposition by the NCR residents (hiring of a helicopter to control the Ardhu House redevelopment).

Located on the North Circular Road, one of Limerick’s most sought after address, “Kylemore” is for sale in three separate lots. Lot 1 is the house on one acre with a guide price of â‚¬5 million plus]refurbishment of St John’s Cathedral[/B].
One of the obvious favourites to purchase Kylemore, according to local speculation, is millionaire property developer Aidan Brookes whose family home adjoins the Georgian residence.
