Some staggering statistics:
Gorey rural area (including town)
Population (2006): 25,808
Properties listed for sale on Daft: 963
Enniscorthy rural area (including town)
Population (2006): 33,111
Properties listed for sale on Daft: 594
Just by way of comparison:
Population (2006): 119,143
Properties listed for sale on Daft: 1,080 (City and suburbs)
Cork has over four times the population of Gorey, yet almost the same number of houses listed for sale.
I guess it’s all the buy-to-letters from Dublin who bought in Gorey? Or is the cost of petrol killing the commuters that bought there? Seems like Gorey is in serious trouble.
In order for the Gorey properties to sell, prices will have to fall. By a huge margin.
