Fears of new property bubble in Ireland

As Dublin says the economy is in recovery, foreign speculators are creating a bubble leading to fears of past mistakes.

    Just months after the Irish government said it was on the road to recovery, it appears foreign speculators are creating a new property bubble in the capital Dublin.

    And housing campaigners say that it's leading to a growing trend of working families having their homes repossessed.

    So is Ireland about to repeat the mistakes that led to the financial crash?
