    Go to Kensington in London and buy a lease from the council for 600 - 700 K for 999 years, you will double your money in no time

    Newry is only 60 minutes by train into Dublin, assuming no border checks.

    Seriously though, if you cannot work out for yourself just how to make sensible investments, best just get back to the jobs list your missus has left for you today and stop worrying about grown-up stuff.

    Aren't you of the view that the city will diminish post-brexit?

    If you want a good yield target Stoke. I'm serious. Check it yourself on rightmove. 50k buys you a 5 year old flat that rents for 400 sterling per month.

    ah found it

    Roman house found in Israel covered in phallic amulets* | Daily Mail Online


    Revealed: 1,900-year-old Roman house covered in PENIS-shaped amulets is discovered in Israel
    Archaeologists discovered the remains of a Roman house in Omrit, Israel
    The house was adorned with images of plants and animals
    It probably belonged to a Roman official who was stationed in the area
    On top of the remains, the researchers found several phallic amulets
    These were often worn by the Romans to keep away bad spirits
    should be perfect.
