“Lack of housing infrastructure and impact high prices has on Ireland’s competitiveness”


We will be kicking off the calendar on January 23rd in CBRE (Henrietta Place,W1G 0NB) with a discussion on the state of the Irish housing market asking whether or not it is holding the country back from fully capitalising on the so-called ‘Brexodus’ as companies scramble to relocate their workforces in the changing face of Europe.


Our fantastic panel will include industry insights from Marie Hunt, Head of Research at CBRE Ireland and John Mulryan, Group MD at Ballymore Group. The night will be moderated by Tina-Marie O’Neill, Property Editor at The Sunday Business Post.

If you’re interested, keep an eye on your inboxes as we will be sending out a link for registration Monday January 14th 2019 at 11:00 as we expect all available spaces to be filled quickly.
