Liz Kearney: I'm part of the stuck generation – try selling that in a property ad

THERE'S not usually a lot to laugh at on Irish telly (not intentionally at any rate), but there is one item of film-making that always gives me a good giggle.

It's an ad for a well-known property website, which I watched again just as news broke that house prices may fall another 20pc before they hit the floor.

The ad focuses on an attractive, young, red-haired woman, trotting through the front square at Trinity College to her student digs. We see her outgrowing her living arrangements, so she hops on to the website in question and finds a more suitable pad for herself and her significant other – a sleek, modern, apartment-style home full of bleached wood and shiny surfaces.
