House prices continued to rise over the past year with homes in the mid-west rising by over a fifth. The latest Property Price Homes Index from the CSO shows a increase of 8.4 per cent nationally up to October.
But the mid-west region counties Limerick, Clare and Tipperary saw a spike of 21.5 per cent largest in the state. In Dublin prices rose by 6.3 per cent with the largest growth in Dun Laoghaire – Rathdown at 8.2 per cent.
