AN old tailor's shop in Skibbereen for sale at €110,000, and a two-bed home near Millstreet going for a bargain €40,000 were among the properties featured in Cheap Irish Homes on RTÉ on Tuesday night.
The other two properties were a three-bed townhouse in Ballyclogh and a house on almost an acre of land in Ballingeary.
In the episode, Dublin couple Aidan and Fiona were seeking to relocate to Cork and wanted an affordable place to live.
House number two was near Ballydaly, near Millstreet in North Cork. This two-bed property has an incredible price tag of €40,000, which would leave the young family some of their budget to turn it into a home. It is set on a 1/3 of an acre.
The third property that Maggie and Kieran showed Aidan and Fiona is in Ballyclogh, 40 minutes from Cork city, but with proximity to Limerick city, and only 10 minutes from the Cork to Dublin train line. A three-bed townhouse in the centre of town, it has a garage / workspace out the back.
The final house for Aidan and Fiona to see was a rural property, in Aharas, 30 minutes from Macroom. A three-bed property on almost one acre for €75,000, it is in reasonably good condition.
At the end, the couple said their preferred home was the Ballydaly property on the market for €40,000.
For Cork housing expert Kieran McCarthy, being involved in this property series is a joy on two fronts.
