pick a colour
Saw these houses on one of our walks. They are located a few miles from the centre of town. It is interesting that they are all basically the same except for the colour of their door. There is a shortage of houses, flats/apartments here in Ireland and it has caused a jump in people being homeless especially in areas around Dublin. That's where the jobs are and people can't afford the high rent there. Also, landlords are taking some of their rentals out of the market and reserving them as holiday homes for higher profits thus adding to the shortage of affordable housing. There is some chatter going on about Airbnb dropping thousands of illegal houses/flats/apts that are being used as holiday rentals. Maybe they will find a workable solution to the shortage problem.
