Louise Kelly: Renting may be a mug’s game - but someone’s got to do it.
SO on the back of all the property revelations this week, it has fallen upon me to move house this weekend.
Let me begin by confessing that I am a renter. Part of a growing clique of late twenties/early thirties Irish that have not succumbed to the draw of living abroad and have yet to sign their name on the biggest contract of their lives.
For the last decade, I have lived in umpteen houses across Dublin, with the exception of a not so brief stint in the UK. Over the years, I have become somewhat of an expert in the art of location reassignment. A first class graduate from the school of ‘Large Bulky Items are my Foe’, if you will.
