The potential impact on the Irish property sector of the UK's decision to vote in favour of Brexit will be up for discussion this Thursday when leading figures from the country's real estate industry gather at Dublin's RDS for a special debate on the subject.

The Real Estate Stakeholders Debate Brexit summit, of which the Irish Independent and Sunday Independent are media sponsors, will see contributions from a number of Ireland's most prominent property figures, including Hibernia Reit CEO Kevin Nowlan, Ronan Group Real Estate development director Shane Whelan and the AIB's head of land and development, Derek O'Shea.

Of particular interest to those in attendance, however, will be the views of Colm Lauder, who has just returned from London to take up his new role as senior analyst within the real estate division at Goodbody. Prior to taking up that position, Lauder had served as vice president within MSCI's real estate market consultancy division since 2011.

Thursday's real estate summit has received strong support, with sponsorship from KPMG, QRE, developer Johnny Ronan's RGRE, Maples & Calder and AIB.
