Coupled with this it is very difficult to get health insurance if it has lapsed for sometime as there are loading waiting times in place,” Mr Neville claimed.The Fine Gael hopeful insists those returning home to the Emerald Isle from overseas also face difficulties in acquiring a drivers license.“In Canada a lot of Irish construction workers need Canadian licenses to get jobs. The authorities their require you to give up your Irish license. On returning to Ireland within a certain time period an Irish person should be entitled to get their Irish license without having to give up their Canadian one,” he commented.“Irish construction contractors often stay in Canada for a number of months on a project to return home again for a number of months before going back to Canada again. The nature of the work is contract based. Irish FIFO (fly in fly out) contractors are now very much part of modern Ireland due to the challenging economic circumstances. When they return home they are unable to get an Irish license without giving up their Canadian one.”Mr Neville believes the momentum of economic recovery in Ireland has picked up and insists there is a need to build on this in trying to get our emigrants home.

The index measures builder confidence in newly built, single family homes based on current home sales. It was the first time since May of 2013 that the index measured below 50, the neutral point between a market that is viewed as either good or bad. Observed traffic of prospective home buyers fared even worse over the month, falling 9 points to 31.All four regions measured by NAHB reported declines in confidence. Losses ranged from 7 points down to 46 in the South, and a 14 point loss to 57 in the West. Poor weather, combined with existing credit and labor concerns, were all factors in bringing homebuilder confidence down this month to its lowest level in the better part of a year.HomeSteps, the real estate sales division of Freddie Mac, announced it is offering cash incentives to real estate agents who list or sell HomeSteps homes in 23 states.
