The average rent by Shannonside in the second quarter of 2010 was €700.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up One local auctioneer told the Limerick Post that the 0.5% increase could possibly be attributed to students hunting for suitable accommodation prior to the reopening of third level colleges.“I suppose it could be asked why Limerick has bucked the trend when there are big student populations in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Waterford.“Maybe there is a wider choice in those places making the market more competitive…I don’t know, really.“While there is a lot of purpose built units close to LIT, UL and Mary Immaculate, it has been noted that many students are opting to go it alone and renting houses and flats in nearby estates, which can work out cheaper than student apartment blocks.“What can be said is that landlords are now more conscious of their obligations and have upgraded their properties. Likewise, students have become very selective in their requirements”.The average asking rent in the country was just over €835 per month, down 5% on the same time last year.Commenting on the report, Ronan Lyons, Economist with Daft.ie said, “The year-on-year fall in rents is now at its slowest pace in two years, suggesting that the rental market may be close to stabilising. Nonetheless, the total stock of properties available to rent remains high, which means we are unlikely to see rents rising rapidly in the near future.”Rents in Munster fell by 1.1% between April and June, having been largely static in the first three months of the year.The average rent in Limerick city in the second quarter of 2010 was €700, while the average in the rest of the county was €650. This represents falls of €220 and €150 from their peaks in 2008.Even though there has been an upwards trend in Limerick prices, they are still considerably lower than in the Celtic Tiger years.This is the third year in a row that rents have been lower at national level than the previous year.Compared with 2007, a typical student renting a two-bedroom property could expect to save between €1,500 and €4,000 over the course of the academic year.The cost of accommodation for students still varies significantly around the country, with the average for a double room in Dublin city centre about twice the cost of renting in Athlone, Castlebar and Tralee.
The A6 motorway generated HRK 879,7 million in revenue last year, 4,7 percent more. Dalmatina and A1 are in third place, with revenues of HRK 710,2 million, an increase of 5,3 percent. On the motorways under the jurisdiction of the state companies Hrvatske autoceste (HAC) and Autoceste Rijeka – Zagreb (ARZ), a total of HRK 2,87 billion was collected from VAT in the past year, excluding VAT, 6% or 160 million more than in 2017, writes Poslovni.hr Individually by months, the highest toll revenue was realized in August, amounting to HRK 450,7 million. In that month, the record holder for toll collection was the A6 with revenues of HRK 155,7 million. It is followed by A1 with toll revenues in that month in the amount of 134 million kuna. On the A1, the very great sensuality of traffic is still visible. Thus, for example, 524 thousand vehicles passed that highway in January, while in the peak season in August, that number exceeds two million. The summer, 10 percent higher toll tariff last year took effect on June 15 and was in effect until September 15. According to HAC data, the growth of toll revenues was accompanied by an increase in traffic, so last year there were 58,56 million vehicles on their highways, five percent more than in 2017. They also recorded an increase in traffic and tolls on all highways. And the most significant revenue in 2018 was generated on the A3 motorway – HRK 946,9 million without VAT. Last year, a total of 17,8 million vehicles passed through this highway, almost a million more than in 2017.
Entering Monday’s showdown with crosstown rival UCLA, the USC men’s volleyball team was hoping to put its past woes behind it. Instead, the night proved only to add to the team’s frustration. This match, which marked the Trojan’s third in five days, would leave the Trojans in disappointment once again as the Bruins overpowered them, 25-18, 25-21, 25-17.Not enough · Sophomore middle blocker Robert Feathers (16) had four kills in USC’s defeat at the hands of No. 2 UCLA on Monday. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanUSC (3-7) entered Monday night’s game coming off a tough contest against top-ranked BYU on Saturday night. The Trojans were upended by the Cougars (9-3) in four sets, unable to capitalize on the momentum of their victory over Cal Baptist on Thursday. Though disappointing, the match featured impressive performances from junior opposite Tanner Jansen and sophomore setter Micah Christenson. The production of these two helped USC stay competitive against a tough BYU squad.UCLA (10-8), led by junior outside hitter Gonzalo Quiroga, proved to be another difficult challenge for the Trojans. Owners of the fifth-best hitting percentage in the nation, the Bruins took advantage of some strong attacks, as well as some Trojan errors, to jump to an early 7-2 lead. Though the Trojans were able to settle down, the strong blocking from UCLA made it nearly impossible to chip away at the lead. The Bruins took the first set easily, 25-18.UCLA jumped out to a quick lead once again in the second set, thanks largely to the many service errors made by the Trojans. But this time, USC was able to bounce back and, thanks to some key kills from Jansen, evened the game at 15. From there, the two teams traded points until UCLA pulled away once again. With two powerful kills at the end, the Bruins took the set, 25-21.Neither team was able to gain an early advantage in the third set. Though the Bruins’ strong attack won them a number of points, the Trojans earned many back from UCLA’s serving mistakes. Eventually, the clutch play of Quiroga allowed the Bruins to pull ahead 12-7. The Trojans did their best not to fall behind but, as was the story of the night, they were unable to close in on their cross-town rivals. UCLA finished off the set 25-17 and took the match.“The serving and passing is what made the difference,“ USC head coach Bill Ferguson said. “We couldn’t get them into trouble. Our players that usually put guys in trouble at the service line didn’t have any success doing that and their offense was in rhythm all night.”Though the Trojans hit a respectable .338 in this match, their poor serving would be their undoing. Christenson, who has had six aces in each of the previous two matches, was not nearly as effective against the Bruins, and the rest of the team combined for 12 service errors.However, USC still had reason to celebrate Monday night, as they saw the return of junior All-American libero Henry Cassiday. Cassiday, who was sidelined as a result of his off-season hip surgery, got his first action of the season on Monday night, marking the Trojan’s return to full strength.“Henry wasn’t his best, but it was great to have him out there,” Ferguson said. “It was good to have his experience and level of understanding, that helped settle us down quite a bit.”The Trojans dropped to 3-7 with the loss and finish off their homestand with a match against UC Santa Barbara at the Galen Center on Thursday at 7 p.m.
