35% of people in Cavan and Monaghan struggling to find affordable home insurance

Over a third of people in Cavan and Monaghan have difficulty in finding affordable home insurance.

That’s according to figures released by AA Ireland.

A recent report from the CSO shows that the cost of home insurance has increased by 5.9% in the last 12 months.

AA Ireland carried out a survey of 7,000 people and found that around 33% of Irish home owners have experienced difficulty in finding home insurance at an affordable price.

In Cavan and Monaghan that figure is slightly higher, and stands at around 35%.

Barry Aldworth from AA Ireland says one of the reasons for the increase in home insurance is because people over value their property.
