Djouce Meadow, Roundwood, Co. Wicklow, is on the Department of the Environment’s list of estates which are exempt from the household charge.
The exemption is because the estate is a category three or category four unfinished estate.
Despite this, despite the official recognition that the estate is at present unfit for purpose, the houses are not only still for sale, but for sale at ten times the median wage.
It’s not even on the market at a knock-down, buyer-beware price.
So, how the hell can we be at the bottom of the housing crash when even houses on estates that the Irish government has officially declared as unfit for purpose are still listed at ten times the median wage?
What a fantasy world the Irish media lives in.
