As a result of the property bubble bursting there are now ghost estates on the edges of most towns and villages in Ireland. They stand as sentinels, waiting and watching. They are a testament to our collective greed and insanity. And they will haunt us for a very long time.
At Hallowe’en our children might be afraid to venture near these estates but the really frightening thing is that it is they who will be paying for them for a long time.
