THERE were 1,140 household dwelling purchases across Clare in 2021, with almost a third of them in the Ennis area, according to figures from the Central Statistics Office.

Their research shows that the Ennis Municipal District accounted for 340 of the transactions, which was twice the 170 recorded in the Ennistymon Municipal District.

The Kilrush and Shannon Municipal Districts accounted for 220 each, while the Killaloe Municipal District had 190.

The median price was also highest in the Ennis MD at €217,000. It was next highest in the Shannon MD at €205,000 and wasn’t much lower in the Ennistymon MD at €203,000.

In the Killaloe Municipal District it was €195,000 while the lowest median price was in the Kilrush Municipal District, where it was €146,000.

However, while the Ennis Municipal District had the highest median price it didn’t have the highest median income.

In the Ennisymon MD the median income of purchasers was €72,100; in the Shannon MD it was €61,300 and in the Killaloe MD it was €60,800.

In the Ennis MD it was €57,100 which was slightly higher than the Kilrush MD, which was €55,100.

Despite Covid-19, each MD in Clare had more transactions in 2021 than in 2019, the last year before the pandemic.

The rise was greatest in West Clare, with the Kilrush MD seeing an increase of over 22%, from 180 in 2019 to 220 in 2021.
