Up the Dubs...Literally

The Central Statistics Office has predicted that the population of Greater Dublin will reach the two million mark by 2021.

Regional population projections released by the agency today said the Greater Dublin Area (GDA) would account for more than 40% of the population within 16 years, compared to 39.2% at present.

The GDA covers the counties of Dublin, Kildare, Meath and Wicklow.

The CSO also said today that the population of the entire country was expected to reach around five million by 2021.

This is yet more bad news for those looking to buy houses in Dublin. I think a significant portion of Dubs will head into those surrounding counties of Kildare, Meath and Wicklow as it makes sense financially. It's a shame that this has to happen though.
