Beginning in the mid 1990s, Ireland experienced dramatic growth which was referred to as the Celtic Tiger. The property market spiralled with large numbers of housing estates being built all over the country however as a result of the global economic crisis of the late 2000s, Ireland’s property market collapsed plunging the country into a recession. Many of these housing developments and their associated debts have been taken over by the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) which attempts to recover money from bad debts owed to the now nationalised Irish banks.
