Q3 was another active quarter in the Dublin industrial market with a total of 46 individual transactions signing in the period. As a result of a number of large sales that completed recently, sales accounted for 76% of industrial transactions in Dublin in Q3 with lettings comprising the remainder.  We are now on course for record performance in this sector in 2015 with take-up in the year-to-date almost matching the volume for the entire year last year. This quarter has also seen upward pressure on prime industrial rental values which are now up 12% year-on-year to approximately €72.50 per square metre.
