The author runs an Irish property finding company and has written a detailed book on the process of buying in Ireland. Very useful. This book is greatest however when it summarises, as if for an outsider, the recent history of the Irish property market and explains its effects. As a Brit, who like the rest of the UK, is obsessed with homes and property, the horror stories it contains make rivetting if scary reading - 60% plus negative equity, developers fleeing the country, lives in tatters etc etc. The Celtic Tiger well and truely turned around and bit its own backside and this book will help you steer through the gory remains if buying in Ireland. I hope the author writes another book, perhaps detailing more information on the history of the property bubble and its effects. They have a nice writing style. Recommended.
