The Irish housing market, which has been the fastest-growing in the EU, has been a boon to the financial services industry.
The country has also been the home of the largest property boom in the world in recent years, and the housing market has seen a huge influx of investors.
But there has been controversy surrounding the growth of the housing sector in recent months.
The latest figures from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) show that the number of rental properties in Ireland increased by a staggering 3.6% in the three months to the end of March 2017, and by a whopping 6.7% in May.
This is the first increase in the number since the first quarter of 2016.
It also shows that the average annual rent for a rental property in the Republic of Ireland has increased by 4.4% in that time.
It is also worth noting that the figures show that a large part of the increase in rental property prices can be attributed to the introduction of the Rent Relief Scheme, which allows landlords to charge an annual fee of 0.9% of the rent paid.
However, there has also long been a debate in the housing industry over the size of the market.
According to a recent report from the Institute of Fiscal Studies, the Irish housing boom has led to a rise in house prices in the country by an average of 13% in a decade.
And it is also possible that the housing boom may not be sustainable for long.
According the latest figures, there are now about 3.5 million people in the construction and demolition sector in Ireland.
There are about 3,000 new homes each month being built, and according to the latest research by TD Bank, about 7.2 million people are waiting to buy their first home.
The biggest surge in the numbers of homes being built and sold in Ireland is in the areas of Cork, Limerick, Waterford and Kildare, which are all heavily populated by young people.
The Irish housing bubble has been fuelled by a series of government decisions.
In the summer of 2016, the Government introduced the Rent relief scheme, which allowed landlords to increase their annual fee for a new rental property from 0.5% to 0.75% of their rent.
And in the first year of the scheme, about 5,500 new properties were built in Cork alone.
And this year, the Housing Minister, Simon Coveney, announced that there will be a tax relief of 0% on all property transactions from April 2017.
The rise in rents has also led to the establishment of a specialised fund, which helps owners of rental homes pay down their mortgages and build a new one.
And now, the boom is back.
According a recent study by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), there are about 4,500 properties in the Dublin region which have been sold.
And there is a further 1,300 properties in Limerick and the other counties of Clare, Water, Cork and Wicklow.
These figures also show that there are almost 7,000 vacant properties.
And, according to recent research by Bank of Ireland, the real estate market is now more fragile than it was before the bubble burst.
Its analysis of the real-estate market shows that by 2021, the bubble will have shrunk by nearly 90%.
The report, which was released earlier this month, also found that Ireland’s real estate bubble is more fragile today than it has ever been.
It states that Ireland now has a “vulnerability multiplier” of between 0.45 and 0.69 for its real-property market.
This means that by the end a decade from now, there will still be about 100,000 homes that have not been sold, and more than 10 million people waiting to purchase their first homes.
The IFS said the bubble is now “more fragile than at any time since 2008”, which means that the country will not be able to maintain its current housing supply for many years to come.
