'Recession' not affecting property investors abroad

The economic recession in Ireland has had little impact on the number of Irish people investing in foreign properties, according to a leading French-based estate agent.

Chez Riviera is a free Irish-owned property-finding service in the French Riviera, the most sought-after area in the world for luxury apartments and villas.

"While the Celtic Tiger was this week declared dead by the Economic and Social Research Institute, its claw marks are still being felt in the south of France where Irish property investors now have a greater presence than their British counterparts," stated Donal Warde of Chez Riviera.
