Ireland has become an attractive island of refuge for wealthy climate migrants looking for a place to hide

Not everyone hates Putin these days – and that’s especially true of the auctioneer’s profession, which is based in some of Ireland’s most remote regions.

While the pandemic legacy of working from home set the prelude to this rustic romance, Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has taken the passion for a pastoral idyll to an overwhelming peak.

Rocks and rushes – the bane of every farmer’s life – have suddenly turned vast agricultural acres into six-figure gold mines in the most remote corners.
