Irish house prices rose to the highest since 2007 in June, matching the peak seen before the country suffered one of the worst property crashes in Western Europe.

It’s taken over 15 years for prices to recover from the property crash that almost bankrupted the country, forcing it to seek an international bailout in November 2010.
