Not comparing like with like
JOE Duigan (Letters, April 23) writes: "There is no house available in France that a family could live in close to any town or city for less than €250,000."
He then says that a house can be bought in Ireland for as little as €130,000.
He is obviously comparing apples to oranges. Houses in my area of north Dublin have sold for €300,000-plus as recently as last month.
