Irish Investment Market Exceeding Expectations

Irish investment turnover reached just under €700 million during the third quarter of the year, representing an increase of 63% relative to Q2. This brings total investment for the first nine months of the year to just over €1.8 billion, down 40% on the same period in 2019, however it is worth noting that 2019 was an outlier due to the large number of high-value portfolio sales transacted.
