41% Of First Time Buyers On Dublin Commuter Belt Have Moved From Elsewhere

This report by the Banking and Payments Federation carries a stark warning.

If first time buyers continue to drift to the Dublin commuter belt, it will put pressure on the infrastructural needs in these areas, which is likely to have a negative impact on the overall competitiveness of the Irish economy.

More than three quarters of first time buyers who bought in the commuter belt, are originally from the capital.
