No takers for Keating's €2.45m luxury mansion

The property market may be booming in Dublin again, but Ronan Keating's former family home is still on the market, five months after going up for sale.
The €2.45m home in the exclusive enclave of Abington in Malahide, north County Dublin is still listed as available, despite attracting lots of interest.
In January the home that Ronan shared with former wife Yvonne Keating and their three children Jack, Ali and Missy went on the market as the pair move on with their lives.
Being sold through Sherry FitzGerald Blanc, it's hailed as the last word in luxury for the discerning house-buyer.
The estate, which was built in 2000, is also home to a host of celebrities including Westlife's Nicky Byrne and Georgina.
Robbie Keane also has a house there with wife Claudine, a home they snapped up during the slump in 2012 for €1.6m.
The Keatings initially paid €3.17m for a six-bedroomed showhouse, but sold it back to Parkway a few years ago in favour of No 50.
No expense was spared in kitting out the house, including fabrics which were sourced at the annual Paris interiors shows.
One of the bedrooms in the 6,286sq ft property has been fully converted into a home gym and the property also has a soundproof room in the basement for use as a home cinema.
There is also a library-style cocktail bar, an open-plan living room and kitchen, with mirrored ceilings and chandeliers inside their bathroom.
Yvonne's now looking out for a new pad - but has emphasised she'll be staying in the area, given the children are so settled there.
