The city is getting developed at a rapid pace again . I know a carpenter who bought a brand new Audi A6 another plumber who got the missus a new 4x4 . Every one getting cars on PCP . Eating out all the time , sun holidays 2-3 times a year . The price of housing and rent is going to the previous levels that brought us the crash . The price of a sambo is even frightening. People think they sophisticated because they have money .
Maybe it is me but we are heading back to the times of the Tiger and I didn't like that and I know people were hit hard in the recession but life was a lot easier going over
The last couple of years with people not trying to
Out do each other at every turn . How long will this last this time

I liked the recession ina  way. Brought a lot of arseholes back down to earth.  The whole country became a cringeful embarassment.

Ireland was like Wayne and Waynetta Slob when they won the lotto.

Arseholes (there was one well known poster on this forum) going on about their property portfolio and all that sh*te.  Gobsh*tes buying big Range Rovers with the black alloys.  Drive a normal car you t**ser.

Anyway you are right.  We are heading into another property bubble. Paddy doesn't like slumming it now that he has got a taste of the skiing trips to Andorra and the weekend shopping trips for the dolly bird wife in New York.
So you've decided to read this eh?

There's nowhere near the levels of personal debt that there was 10 years ago. Banks are not lending as recklessly as they were during the Celtic Tiger years.

From my understanding household debt is going down because the value of people's homes are going up. Obviously this would be aided by restrictions on credit.

Whatever about Dublin and other major urban centres, rural Ireland is a different picture. I have been monitoring property prices for homes within a 45 minute drive of Cork. They have only had modest rises in the past 24 months. Word on the street from trades people I know is that things are tipping along nicely. It's certainly not boom time yet in rural Ireland.

It isn't mashed, it is smashed! 
Fun fact; hipsters obsession with avocado has seen a huge surge in illegal deforestation in Mexico and rising prices has seen it suggested that the cartels may be getting involved. At least cocaine is worth the effort.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Grilled halloumi is nice though, is it in fashion these days?

Oh yes. No self respecting hipster would be seen eating anything else. Avocado went mainstream 'man'.

The latest London street food craze is halloumi fries - deep fried halloumi 'chips'. 

I assume its only a matter of time before it spreads West.

I am north east! I did see somewhere advertising those, it might have been that ****ish hipster place in town. They sound nice though.
I remember having 'vegetarian' fish'n'chips in Archway 6-7 years ago, it was slices of halloumi battered and deep-fried! It was one of the unhealthiest and most delicious things I have ever eaten. I had a raging hangover too.

Was having a bite to it recently and there was 2 young Asian girls sitting across from us, by the time they got to eat their food it must have been cold! We got our food around the same time and were finished by the time they started, I was expecting them to pull a drone out to make sure they got it from every angle.
We have definitely crawled sideways as a species when our immediate reaction to food is to photograph. One encouraging thing is the term 'food porn'(Angry) seems to have disappeared.

anyway back on topic. 

I haven't seen people behaving like they did in the boom. 

Are people buying cars on that pcp thing where if you miss a payment or some other thing like that you get hit with huge penalties? If it's the same thing I've heard about then that's where a crash is likely. 

Finally house prices are going up but the rules are very tight on who they are lending to and also having x amount of a deposit, so again a crash their is not likely. 

The biggest killer is the price of renting is so expensive then it makes sense to buy a house in many people's situations.
