The area is fine. Very quiet. All the neighbours I have met so far have been very friendly. Id imagine the 'skangers' reference probably refers to houses backing onto the railway line near Broombridge Station, which has a bad reputation for vandalism and anti social activity. I havnt had or seen any problems and I back onto the railway. Also its handy for town, Ive walked to Parnell Square in half an hour.
One word of warning, we have discovered problems with the roof which our surveyor didnt spot and may cost quite a bit to put right. From what Ive heard roof problems are very common with these houses.
