    I got that. It’s a phishing message. Likely the foreman or someone using the account of the foreman had been tricked into giving away some information including yours and mine email addresses

    Don’t enter any details or even click the pdf link. Just delete it, sit back, enjoy your Christmas Eve and don’t give it another thought.

    Hi Taz,

    Enquired with Siro.. problem is they have to drill through my new house so couldn't go ahead with it.. looks like virgin is the only option unless u want to drill .

    Hi Royalshiva,


    Did they say where they had to drill, was it external walls or just inside, don't fully understand why it would need to be external, was it to install the ONT somewhere specific. Siro works in part with ESB can they not just bring it in through ESB ducting, there should be very limited interference if any at all between electric and fibre cables.

    Hi, does anybody know if there’s a skylark or st. Marnocks bay residents association or a neighborhood watch group?

    Official Dublin Airport Noise complaint form.

    Why would someone who bought a house on the flightpath of an adjacent international airport want to file a noise complaint?

    Please tell me no one is dumb enough to buy a house in this location and not realise this😂

    Hi,

    Does anybody have a recommendation for somebody who could install an outdoor tap for the garden?

    thanks

    Has anyone who bought in Skylark considered a small flat top extension or attic conversion? I believe it had to be cleared by the contractors first but wondered if anyone had any success and if so, whether they gained much space

    Did anyone get any update on this? I looked up the info from the message quoted and can’t make heads nor tails of it.

    I wonder if we could we get some drone footage of the new phase being built? Looks like they are making a lot of progress!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,413 ✭✭✭Sono


    just got an email about new phase launching, no prices though, does anyone know the price list and if so would it be possible to post here or PM me? Looked at 3 bed south facing semi d or detached prices. Thanks

    second hand 3 beds in st marnocks bay next door are going for €665k or so, so probably near the €700k mark. It’s very frustrating given those world have gone for €500k I think about 6 years ago brand new.

    Adjusted for inflation, 500K 6 years ago is worth 602.28K now.



  • Registered Users Posts: 51 ✭✭reactadabtc


    They're on a Daft, but no prices. I hate POA so so much.



  • Registered Users Posts: 211 ✭✭SimpleDimple


    That may be the case but as someone currently looking for a house I can confirm that common sense and logic doesn’t come into it. 1970’s houses in older portmarnock are going for upwards of €800k. Drumnigh manor had some 3 beds for sale last year and they were €600k - €675k fyi.

    Hello folks,

    I have been thinking of buying a house in Skylark. I talked to someone living close to Portmarnock and he told me there is robbing almost once two weeks. Before I change my mind, I want to ask you guys -especially to someone living there- if it is correct or it is exaggrated? After a little research, I found there are social houses not only in Dun Si but also in progress in Station Road (Ballymore) right now. Would it be a problem in the future in terms of safety? I would appreciate if you share your experience with me.

    I don't think social housing has anything to do with it. I think from time to time silly kids come from outside of Portmarnock and 'raid' the nice areas. I would say once every 3-4 months is more accurate and I imagine it's going on everywhere too. Most people here have doorbell cameras and there's been a couple of times where kids check a few car doors and have a rummage. Haven't heard of a house being robbed though.

    Anyone here buy in the latest phase? :)



  • Registered Users Posts: 1 eskay


    I questioned this myself and was told the houses in Drumigh were up for sale at that price because 1/3 of them had pyrite issues!



  • Registered Users Posts: 36 ChicoCannon


    I am aware that the someone was caught on camera a while back checking to see if cars were unlocked, not sure if anyone has had anything actually stolen.

    I would suspect the people who have been involved are most likely from outside the estate rather than the social housing.



  • Registered Users Posts: 36 ChicoCannon


    I thought i heard starting at 625k



  • Registered Users Posts: 51 ✭✭reactadabtc


    You bought 10 minutes away from the airport. Stop complaning! Do you realise the perk of being so close.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,372 ✭✭✭easygoing39


    Drone footage of an estate on the the flightpath to a busy international airport??? The godshite's seem to have taken over this new estate!!!!!! Between this and the other one linking the aircraft noise complaint form!!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 2 rudiger12


    How high do you think the drones can go? Should I put my kite away too?



  • Registered Users Posts: 902 ✭✭✭Tazium


    Rules changed in relation to drones near the airport since the original footage was taken. While it's still outside the zone, the opportunities to collect footage without impacting other residents privacy is quite limited. I do plan to have a go when I can, but there's really not enough spread in the new development yet.

    Hi Folks. We're thinking of buying in the upcoming phase of Skylark. We've been out a couple of times and listened to the planes and didn't find them too loud but difficult to say how annoying hearing them very often would be, we do currently live beside a main road so aren't strangers to noise. How do people currently living there find the noise inside the house and in the gardens? Is there any other considerations around this to consider before purchasing? Thanks in advance for any help!

    I was the same as yourself. Came out to listen to them and decided it was ok.

    First couple of weeks surprised me a bit as I didn't think they would feel so present how after that it just disappeared into the background. Indoors if you listen for them you'll notice it but otherwise it's just nothing. In the garden it's obviously loud but again you get used to it. Take off is louder and longer but is only 25-30% of the time. An absolute majority of people aren't bothered at all but some people are what I would call supersensitive to sound and if you're like that it could wreck your head. You're probably not like that because you live beside a main road and are still considering a house under the flight path
