Galway has fifth highest level of house repossessions in the State

Tue, Jul 26, 2016

More than 101 repossession cases are listed before the Galway Circuit Court for this week alone, revealing Galway to have one of the highest levels of house repossessions in the State.

Independent county councillor James Charity said the banks are now "the busiest court users and most common plaintiffs in the State", with many of the homes being sought for repossession being family homes.

Among the 26 counties of the Republic, Galway is the fifth highest with 101 cases, closely followed by Wicklow at 100. These are only exceeded by Dublin (335), Limerick and Cork (146 each), and Waterford (140). More widely, Connacht alone will deal with 324 repossession cases in July, while nationwide 2,644 cases are listed just this month. Cllr Charity has called the figures "simply staggering".
