Is there nothing Garda can do about scramblers. We were pestered all day yesterday with 3 going around the park beside us and last night the two were walking with the scrambled home on the footpath, no doubt ran out of petrol or broken. A Garda car passed them and just drove on........ I was at the traffic lights thinking oh great they finally have them but no they just drove on!

Those scramblers are going to become more and more popular, everywhere I go I see them and not just in high crime areas!

Gardai are waiting for the proposed law to go through, could be a long wait unfortunately.

What area are you specifically looking at? Are you talking about the likes of Neilstown, Jobstown, Darndale etc? I used to live in Crumlin and only had a bit of trouble in the first year with some scumbag kids. The rest of the 8.5 years not an ounce of trouble.
I really comes down to the street.

Well, as far as I know walking with a motorbike is not illegal.
It would only be illegal if they rode them on public roads.

I rent at the moment in Dublin 8. The teenage Kids are every evening occupy the Fatima / Rialto Luas. Running, throwing stones on people. Not the best place to buy property but never had big problems here and I live in the area since 3 years, my Husband 8. On the back of the building where I rent there was a bomb in a car recently, many people here are on social / drugs.

We are soon applying for the mortgage. With the budget of 250k or with Rebuilding Ireland help 300k what would be the best place to buy? We like Crumlin / Drimnagh / Dublin 15. I hope we get something decent and away from social houses and sums.

Cabra is good spot to buy, prices are gone up last few years due to location but it’s not a bad area these says, some parts are still not great but most are ok and a lot of people buying into the area. House are bit small but good solid builds. I know someone who just moved into one, needed a lot of work but it cost €300k

That is the thing. Ideally we would like to skip the cost of renovation. Some of the houses in D15 for 250k they look fabulous. The question is now how are the bids these days? Is there many people bidding?

Property price register is your friend. Don't get yourself involved into a bidding war as you'll often find yourself bidding against a ghost.

+ EDIT, there's a gang war going on between Blanchardstown and Finglas. A lot of shootings in d15 in the last weeks. It's a bit like wild wild west

I know about this. Maybe Ongar / Clonee. We still have couple of months to go (applying in September). I wish I could escape from this ***** Dublin I am sorry.

There are working class areas, you can buy in that are relatively safe.
For example ,coolock ,or finglas,
but you need to know the area .
pick a house in a council estate , where 95 per cent of the houses
are owned by the people living there ,bought from the council.
Pick a smaller estate, not a estate with 500 plus houses in it ,maybe close to a main road .
Blanchardstown is a large area, there s a mix of council house,s ,
private houses ,apartments .
i could name one estate thats a bit rough ,
but theres very quiet parts of blanchardstown.
There s a feud going on between 2 gangs in dublin for at least 5 years .
My friend lives in finglas and i lived in a private estate in blanch for 4 years .I never felt in danger in blanchardstown and i cycled around alot when i lived there .
maybe drive around there after 9 pm, on friday and saturday ,
to see what its like .
She lives in an ex council estate in finglas ,
the average age there is 40 plus,
theres very few young people living in that estate .
90 per cent of anti social behavior is done by people under 30.

Drimnagh, near the hospital, is quite good in terms of anti-social behaviour, amenities, transport links, closeness to city-centre. The three bedroom houses od the style of the ones on Mangerton/Brandon/Errigal Road have come down in price from about 300K to about 280K, and are good little houses, with nice layouts (bathroom and three bedrooms upstairs; two receptions and a kitchen downstairs). The more westerly part of Drimnagh, nearer to the hospital and Walkinstown, the better.
