An estimated 2,200 households in Mayo open to severe financial risk

It is estimated that approximately 2,200 mortgage holders in Mayo have switched to interest only mortgage payments to assist with affordability, but according to Caledonian Life these homeowners may now be leaving their families open to thousands of euro of legacy debt.
