I used to bring bricks into northern Ireland every weekend from Birmingham. After the brick factory closed in dungannon .lolThe price of rent or bought homes mainland has gone mad and no wonder folk have to live out in vans,home are a fraction of the price here,esp in the republic.
It must be down to the price of clay to make bricks or maybe the lack of it.
I fell sorry for people living near london as from what i see rent is just plain daft.
If every one stopped paying it the sys and price would drop fast when greedy folk went bust.
