          Yeah you could drink wine every day for €7 a week if you limited yourself to 100ml a day https://www.independent.ie/irish-new...-40384633.html

          He added: “There is a smaller group for whom the use of cannabis is associated with paranoia and that is often a risk. Stronger strains are associated with it. Some people have become very unwell with extreme paranoia, hallucinations and thought disorder, and they need hospitalisations.

          “Every week people are coming in who are paranoid. People show us their arms and they are cutting themselves.”

          Cannabis is not expensive and €20 a week would enable a person to use it every day.

            Well Patrick Reid haters . How do ye feel about this from Selby?

            Ronnie O'Sullivan has accused Mark Selby of 'trying to gain a little advantage' but has blamed Shaun Murphy for not doing anything about it, after some controversy in the World...

                Huge amount of this going on over last 18 months. Handy quick buck for builders but not good for general health of housing market in the long run.

                  I'll give you a contra opinio:

                  Landlords in Ireland have typically been small-scale amateurs, leading to a very inefficient market that tended to operate to the disadvantage of renters - poorly maintained stock, lack of contract enforcement mechanisms etc.
                  It's better that the new landlords are those who can operate at scale and thus help to provide a more efficient market. It might also mean that private investors might stop seeing property as the ultimate investment vehicle and instead put their capital to better use in sectors that can deliver a real long-term productive benefit.

                      Fair lump of my commission comes from a deal I did with one of those large investment firms.

                        I'd assumed the property was built for the rental sector. I guess from the developer's point of view, it's the perfect transaction - build 100 gaffs, sell to one buyer all in one go.

                                Those LL's are likely better than the small timers all right, but it's not really the issue people have as the amount of private buy-to-lets aren't as much of an issue as international funds. Investment funds that aren't even allowed buy more properties in their own country (as they are driving the prices up too much) are instead coming to Ireland to just buy all the housing stock here. This then ends up with the local populace unable to buy homes as they are competing with a German pension fund with considerably more capital. Some of this can be good, a local development may only go ahead if it is paid for first - there may actually even be homes that people want to rent - but there has to be some sort of limit to how much of this can happen so that locals can afford houses too.


                                Something also has to be done about our weird laws that now mean that investment funds are letting whole blocks of apartments be vacant instead of lowering the price for rent during the pandemic, since it would be too hard to raise them again.

                                  Do you or someone more informed know the tax liability for a small-time landlord who bought the 2nd house as an investment "for their pension" versus the equivalent for a giant fund?

                                  I'm guessing that the little guy is paying an order of magnitude greater than the fund after corporation tax and financial jiggery-pokery is performed. Maybe there is little to no tax liability for a pension fund?

                                    I see that Shinner housing 'expert' that hitch is a fanboi of is out condemning these investment funds buying up housing estates which is exactly what he is calling for in his housing plan for long term rental but he seems to have developed some magic thinking that sees a difference between Investment funds owned by pension managers and what he describes as 'quick buck merchants'
                                    Is he a moron or a cynical liar.

                                      In the piece SP is talking about they also mentioned: "They pay no capital gains tax, they pay no tax on their rent roll and while they do have to pay dividend withholding tax to their shareholders, if they're structured in the right way they can even offset that.". Companies in general pay less tax than individuals yes.

                                        its the biggest fake news going. pension funds don't pay tax as the owners of the pension pay the tax. If you taxed the pension fund and then taxed the person, you'd be double-taxing people.

                                          We surely don't want to advocate for extra tax on savings and pensions, given its already astronomical.

                                            Other countries (that I know of) either limit amount of houses anybody can own or limit the amount of a development that can be bought by an investment group (20% in Germany I think? Hence them coming here I guess)

                                                  yeah, you probably find that '% of the housing stock owned by investment groups' here is absolutely tiny compared to other countries, thus we are just catching up.

                                                  just 'build more, in the right places' and 'maximise the stock we already have' would get us a long way to the right place.

Or at the very least, somewhere that some of their friends will be working too? i.e. go through your friend who runs the local Spar, cafe, pub (if such things ever reopen)...whatever

                                                      Rather than firing out meaningless 'cvs' as if you're applying for jobs in the paper as a 16 y/o, you won't get them.

                                                        I'm not really getting at that and I don't know a huge amount on the topic, trying to tease this out and improve my understanding. I'm leaning on the side of ringfencing a large portion of new developments for first-time buyers, then social housing, and lastly private investment.

                                                        I don't agree with double taxation like you've pointed out but I'm not sure that it's as clear-cut as you suggest and I'm open to correction. I'm purely using back of envelope calculations here but bear with me:

                                                        If for example, a foreign pension fund buys a property for 300k and then rents that for 2k a month over 12.5 years, it yields the 300k to the fund separate from the actual capital value of the asset. Let's assume there's no recession or crash. Yes, there will be significant administrative and operational costs for the fund but this is surely still a massive money-spinner. Add another 12.5 years and the compound effect of rent adjustments every 5 years which I haven't allowed for. You see where I'm going. It's not unreasonable to assume that 25 years later the fund could have yielded 800k-1m in rent alone. Again separate to the value of the asset. I know there are large risks associated as well the maintenance of the property etc.

                                                        Compare this to the regular mug punter like ourselves or peers who are trying to buy a house and being priced out of the market. The government receives a fair share of tax indirectly as a result of us making a house purchase. Obviously, this also has huge indirect benefits to Irish society - banks, cost of living, jobs, etc.

                                                        I don't enough about the topic and what I've posted is probably a pretty naive set of assumptions. However, should a private foreign investor be allowed to make such potential huge yields while constricting the supply of housing and exerting significant influence on the cost of renting? All the while maintaining a limited tax liability or contribution to our society?

                                                        The loss of tax and societal knock-on effects are quite concerning to me. Could be THE big election issue post-covid and I can see more and more chatter about this every day.

Or at the very least, somewhere that some of their friends will be working too? i.e. go through your friend who runs the local Spar, cafe, pub (if such things ever reopen)...whatever

                                                            Rather than firing out meaningless 'cvs' as if you're applying for jobs in the paper as a 16 y/o, you won't get them.
                                                            None of her friends have a job really. They are all kinda just getting ready to do the same thing.

                                                            Only real places that hire her age are Mr price, Homesavers, them English companies. I have enquired in the shopping centre as I know most but they don't really take them on till they're 17.

                                                            She has an idea on what places to leave cvs into alright.

                                                              Absolutely.

                                                              Although the idea that the 'foreign investment fund' isn't paying tax is wrong, as the foreign investor who is invested in the investment fund is paying tax. For example, in a German investment fund, the tax is being paid by German retirees. Now maybe we might consider it desirable that the tax would be paid in Ireland, but thats a circular argument, as then Irish pension holders would be paying tax on foreign property investment funds (a decent part of any pension, even through standard market index investing).

                                                              I'm not sure that argument is too popular, or would satisfy the general public, but the argument is fundamentally that they should be paying more tax on their pension.

                                                              Maybe something like 'no more than 20% of a block of houses can go to an investment fund, is a decent idea. It would placate people anyway. Until maybe they go to sell their apartment and find the price they will get is lower than they thought because their building block is already 20% owned by investment funds, and so the investors with the most potential cash aren't able to buy.

                                                              I agree though the market needs to change. Something needs to change.

                                                                Mia is looking for a part time job and I dunno wtf she can put down on a CV as obv she has zero work experience do I'm presuming all she can focus on is strengths and interests tyoe thing?
                                                                She is excellent at maths /business if helps
                                                                I can't even remember the layout.
                                                                Any help appreciated!
                                                                Pretty much agreeing with what RD3 says here. A good-looking CV always helps but leaning on your own network or using your innate charm to chat the ears off of business/shop owner will go a long way. My first part-time job in a furniture/carpet store came about from my cousin taking holidays and needing someone to cover for him. My 2nd was a referral from a mate in a petrol station (his dad knew the owner). My brother got a job in the same petrol station as me a few years later. He then got his first "real" job a little later as the owner knew my Dad & Grandad. Both of my sisters got working with their aunt's partner and so on. Mia absolutely has a chance of getting a job on her own if she gets out there but it will be way faster if you can make the connection yourself. I remember distinctly one girl who got hired in the petrol station who looked to chat to the manager. Outside of that, the rest of the CVs went into the bin, unfortunately.

                                                                In terms of a free online CV builder, novo resume makes it easy and looks very well too. It'll definitely help out. Put down her interests, music/signing/band, volunteering and anything of note that she's done with her own initiative. Local shops are a great place to start and I'm sure you know one or two of the managers. Perhaps even some of the places near where you'd work for Sky?

                                                                  Landlords in Ireland have typically been small-scale amateurs, leading to a very inefficient market that tended to operate to the disadvantage of renters - poorly maintained stock, lack of contract enforcement mechanisms etc.
                                                                  It's better that the new landlords are those who can operate at scale and thus help to provide a more efficient market. It might also mean that private investors might stop seeing property as the ultimate investment vehicle and instead put their capital to better use in sectors that can deliver a real long-term productive benefit.
                                                                  Any normal country lets investors put money in markets, but here the revenue stifle that as much as possible with the high capital gains, low allowance, and archaic and awkward rules. SMB and housing is what people are pushed into.

                                                                  Comment

I'm leaning on the side of ringfencing a large portion of new developments for first-time buyers, then social housing, and lastly private investment.

                                                                      I don't agree with double taxation like you've pointed out but I'm not sure that it's as clear-cut as you suggest and I'm open to correction. I'm purely using back of envelope calculations here but bear with me:

                                                                      If for example, a foreign pension fund buys a property for 300k and then rents that for 2k a month over 12.5 years, it yields the 300k to the fund separate from the actual capital value of the asset. Let's assume there's no recession or crash. Yes, there will be significant administrative and operational costs for the fund but this is surely still a massive money-spinner. Add another 12.5 years and the compound effect of rent adjustments every 5 years which I haven't allowed for. You see where I'm going. It's not unreasonable to assume that 25 years later the fund could have yielded 800k-1m in rent alone. Again separate to the value of the asset. I know there are large risks associated as well the maintenance of the property etc.

                                                                      Compare this to the regular mug punter like ourselves or peers who are trying to buy a house and being priced out of the market. The government receives a fair share of tax indirectly as a result of us making a house purchase. Obviously, this also has huge indirect benefits to Irish society - banks, cost of living, jobs, etc.

                                                                      I don't enough about the topic and what I've posted is probably a pretty naive set of assumptions. However, should a private foreign investor be allowed to make such potential huge yields while constricting the supply of housing and exerting significant influence on the cost of renting? All the while maintaining a limited tax liability or contribution to our society?

                                                                      The loss of tax and societal knock-on effects are quite concerning to me. Could be THE big election issue post-covid and I can see more and more chatter about this every day.

                                                                      Comment


                                                                        This debate about restricting property investment is being driven by populist shite. Apartments are a huge risk for individual buyers/investors as the fire safety shortcuts of the past 15 years have shown. Irish pension schemes invest abroad and diversify and it's a good idea so what's wrong with foreign investors diversifying to here?

                                                                        IF we had a better run rental market and more supply then renting would be a more reliable long term option.

                                                                        Too many things outside the single buyers control in an apartment block scenario that can completely destroy their financial lives. Houses less of an issue and the bulk buying of houses is therefore more emotive but if it gives more certainty to builders/developers it will grow the market in aggregate. Instead we have people bemoaning individual stories and not looking at the requirement to build up the overall supply of new accommodation.

                                                                        People want restrictions when they are buying and no restrictions when they are selling. What we need is more stock and capacity to build stock. We also need a bit of realism about the costs of delivering A rated buildings. Just because you want it to cost X doesn't mean it will....Everything else is bullshit tbh.

Was being asked about illegal dumping and why cant CCTV be used as a deterrent ? He goes on to blame GDPR and how they are in talks with Data Commish and blah blah blah...Would love to see a journo get FOI requests in to just prove he is outright lying and call him out for the fraud he is, he ran with the same like when he was questioned about passenger locator forms and using airline manifests.

                                                                                GDPR me hole, th village i live in installed garda ran CCTV poles, nice high up ones covering all 3 entrances and exits of the village...how did they get around this great GDPR concern ? Signs saying you are on CCTV...its not fuckin rocket science.

                                                                                They took half his portfolio away last week, didnt see much chat about that...no fear they will take half his salary.

                                                                                      There appears to be a typo, should this not read covert ? I can "kinda" see the hullabaloo if a camera is hidden, but like i said, if they have cameras installed and a big sign, like every supermarket and shop has, i really cant see the issue with complying with GDPR. Same with Garda cams, if people are seen using a public bin for domestic rubbish this is an offense, whats the issue using the footage ? The data commissioner one needs a boot in the gee i think.

                                                                                                      Opened the door and she was giving it the big, "I checked I can do it"

                                                                                                                  We stumped a few rotten trees and have a skip containing that, and some cardboard boxes etc.
                                                                                                                  Just happened to be looking out the window and saw a biddy dump her dog shit in the skip.
                                                                                                                  Opened the door and she was giving it the big, "I checked I can do it"
                                                                                                                  I asked if she checked with the owners, ie me, and she took it bag out sharpish and scurried off saying it's legal.
                                                                                                                  I'm about 99% sure that animal waste isn't allowed in skips so fuck her.

                                                                                                                  she'll be talking to all the other neighbours complaining about your lack of shit accepting. Soon none of the neighbours will be giving you shit.

                                                                                                                  Don't have a dog, but the fairly obvious flaw with bagging dog shit is that there's hardly any bins around to put the bags in. I realise the bigger takeaway is 'don't buy a dog, if you won't bag his shit', but I do see why loads of it is hanging around. Why is there no bins in the country? Like how did that happen. And every bin is locked down so you can barely get anything in it.

I used to see more of it when I was in the city centre daily, though have seen it out in Nutgrove too. Usually the same kind of eccentric aul fellas who used to check phone boxes for change in the returned coin slot.
