Richard Bruton is worth over 6million, of which property is worth about half of his worth.

M Healy Rae has about 5 million in property alone, add in the shop in Kilgarvan and I'd say he has a slice of the road business too. Must be worth close to 8 million

Possibly easier to ask how many TD's aren't landlords.

Thank you, that was the general info I was looking for. I am from Dublin but I live in rural Ireland at the moment. The amount of empty property around the place is astonishing. Are people generally aware of this?

Yeah big problem alright, goverment have tried a few things to get people to renovate (regenerate ireland scheme) or sell these (property tax), but in a lot of cases they literally can't find who owns buildings.

Not sure how ya do it really, do ya force reclaim property after 5 years?

All of Haughey's backhander money passed on. Great to see people still voting for the Haughey.

Since reading this comment I have spoken to a few people who fully agree about not knowing who owns many properties, is there a government body/office set up to try and find out who owns these empty buildings?
