Limerick group demands action on housing

You’ve seen them on our streets in our homes and on the worried faces of our friends and family.”She said the movement was formed by a “group of concerned community members that came together” with a common goal of supporting those affected by the housing crisis and to “take collective action to demand change”.“I don’t think I’m being too dramatic when I say that probably everyone here is affected by this, the housing crisis or at least know someone who’s affected.”“By coming out today, you have shown that the people in Limerick aren’t going to take it any longer. Underneath it all, we know that there are only two types of people in the housing struggle – the people that profit from it,  and the people who suffer from it.“We also know that there is ultimately more of us than there is of them,” the spokeswoman explained.

Halcyon Greens over 50s community offers homes around a golf course

The Halcyon Greens project is located on a 114 ha site which adjoins an existing 18-hole golf course at Mirvac’s established Gainsborough Greens development. last_img read more

New Queenslanders helping to boost market confidence

first_img Key Market Indicator Awards — Queensland Population growth in Queensland is helping to increase property demand and market confidence.A COMBINATION of rising migration, affordable home loans and increasing incomes could be a winning trifecta for the Queensland property market, according to a new report.The PRD Nationwide Key Market Indicators (Q2) report found Queensland had the property growth indicators and economic fundamentals to boost confidence in the market. But there is room for improvement, the report said, particularly in the areas of dwelling approvals and first homebuyer numbers. Dr Diaswati Mardiasmo, PRD Nationwide national research manager, said market confidence was crucial in the current economic and political climate “where there are many uncertainties … such as federal and state elections, potential implementation of the Royal Banking Commission recommendations, and fluctuating Australian Dollar”. According to the report, the number of people moving to Queensland was up, with net migration growing 22 per cent in the 12 months to September 2018, earning the state a ‘bronze medal’ in the market stakes behind Victoria and New South Wales. However, dwelling approvals were down 35.3 per cent in the year to February. Dr Mardiasmo said the drop in dwelling approvals wasn’t necessarily bad news when coupled with the property demand resulting from population increase. “In one aspect this allows for current stock to be absorbed, particularly those in Brisbane, however it also creates an opportunity for developers wanting to create niche product offerings,” she said. “It does need to be niche product offerings because the market is flooded with the two bedroom, two bathroom style properties.”The report found Queensland continued to be a more affordable for home loans compared to its southern counterparts, though the number of first homebuyers was down.Queensland recorded 35.6 points in the home loan affordability index, above New South Wales (27.2 index points), Victoria (30.2 index points) and the national average (32.0 index points).The number of first homebuyers declined by 14.4 per cent in the year to December.Dr Mardiasmo said affordability was only one factor responsible for the drop in first homebuyers.“It’s not just about affordability, it’s also about how tight the lending market is and taxable income policies,” she said.

This gave Queensland another ‘bronze medal’, placing it behind Victoria/Tasmania (2.9 per cent) and New South Wales/South Australia (2.7 per cent) in the Key Market Indicator Awards.Dr Mardiasmo said the pay increase should translate to a higher disposable income for Queensland families.“This has a positive multiplier effect into the economy, as those working have the potential to spend more on goods and services,” she said.“This creates a steady platform for future economic growth in Queensland.” Net Migration — UP 15,206 people or 22 per centDwelling Approvals — DOWN 35.3 per cent to 2,468Home Loan Affordability — DOWN to 35.6 index pointsWeekly Family Income — UP 2.6 per cent to $1,721First Homebuyer Loans — DOWN 14.4 per cent to 5,664last_img read more

McIlroy made to work hard

first_imgRory McIlroy was happy to grind out an opening 69 to keep his bid for a first FedEx Cup title – and with it a bonus of £6million – on track in the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Thursday. Press Association And with Watson one off the lead alongside Jim Furyk, Patrick Reed and Jason Day after a 67, Mahan was the only one of the quintet at the wrong end of the leaderboard after a 74 left him joint 27th in the 29-man field. McIlroy pushed his drive on the first and saw his attempted recovery shot clip a tree and travel only 40 yards, but the 25-year-old’s third shot grazed the side of the hole as it rolled past and he holed from eight feet for par. A superb approach to two feet set up McIlroy’s first birdie of the day on the third, but he promptly gave that shot back after a poor drive on the fourth and hit an even worse drive on the next. Fortunately for the four-time major winner, his ball bounced out of the trees and allowed him to find the green with his approach and make par, while he holed from six feet on the sixth to get back into red figures. That did not last long after two visits to sand on the seventh cost him a bogey, but McIlroy again rebounded immediately with a birdie from eight feet on the eighth. McIlroy’s long and straight driving has been his major weapon this season, helping him win the Open Championship, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and US PGA in consecutive appearances. However, the Northern Irishman was struggling to find the fairways at East Lake and another errant drive found a fairway bunker on the 10th, from where he had to settle for par. McIlroy then bogeyed the 11th after duffing his second shot from the fringe and was looking increasingly frustrated as birdie chances went begging, but he holed from 10 feet on the 17th and saved par from a greenside bunker on the 18th to end in good spirits. McIlroy carded four birdies and three bogeys at East Lake to finish one under par, three shots off the lead shared by Chris Kirk and Billy Horschel. Kirk, Horschel, Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan and McIlroy are the five players who know victory on Sunday would also see them secure the overall FedEx Cup title won by Sweden’s Henrik Stenson last year. “It was a grind out there,” McIlroy told Sky Sports 4. “It feels like every day for the last couple of weeks has been a grind, just getting up and trying to give 100 per cent on the golf course. “It just seemed like every time I made a step forward I seemed to get knocked back on the next hole. I kept the round together well on the back nine, made a good up and down on 16 and a great birdie on 17, so even though it was not the best score, I’m pretty pleased with how I finished.” Speaking about the motivation of winning the FedEx Cup title, McIlroy added: “It’s very big. Regardless of whatever is at stake in terms of prize money, I would just like to win the FedEx Cup. With the year that I’ve had I really want to finish it off well.” However, he faces some stiff competition from the likes of Kirk and Horschel, who won the last two play-off events, the Deutsche Bank Championship and BMW Championship respectively. Kirk’s win came in the final event before Tom Watson announced his Ryder Cup wild cards, but was not enough to earn him a trip to Gleneagles later this month. The 29-year-old carded a flawless 66 containing four birdies, the last coming when he chipped in from 25 yards on the 17th, while Horschel also returned an error-free scorecard. Day had five birdies and two bogeys in his 67, despite losing his caddie Col Swatton to a back injury after seven holes. Day had to withdraw from the BMW Championship due to his own back problems and joked: “It’s contagious in my group right now.” Watson carded seven birdies, a double bogey and two bogeys in his 67, the left-hander dropping out of a share of the lead when he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker on the 18th. Sergio Garcia was aided by a chip-in birdie on the 17th as he matched McIlroy’s 69, while Justin Rose recorded a 72 and Martin Kaymer a 73. last_img read more
