The Irish News is reporting that a nursing home in Cork is on sale for a reported $1.1 million.
The article also states that a property is being developed in Co Galway which will be the largest single residential building in the country.
There are also reports that a new nursing home will be built in Co Wicklow and a large building is under construction in Cork.
The Irish News reports that it is understood that the nursing home would be owned by a private company and would be in a location where there is not a lot of competition for nursing homes.
There is also a suggestion that there will be a significant amount of staff involved in the construction of the building.
A statement from the Nursing Home Council said the council had no comment at this stage.
