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.

The report also highlights how first time buyers from Dublin can't afford to buy in their home county,

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