A few months ago I went through a phase of writing about abandoned things, I got a bit obsessed by them. I covered everything from monuments to fair grounds and holiday villages to nuclear fall out zones. They were hand picked from all round the world, but it was only recently brought to my attention that the financial crisis in Europe has flung up some abandoned housing estates much closer to home – The Republic of Ireland. These aren’t just ghost houses, but “ghost estates”. At first glance they look pretty normal, but they are completely empty and have been built partially and then abandoned entirely.
