About

"Priced Out of Dublin" is a phrasal template based on a headline from the Irish Times newspaper about rising housing prices in Dublin. Online, users have taken the headline's format, "Priced Out of X? Consider Y" to express other humorous alternatives to living in an expensive city.

Origin

On January 6th, 2018, the Irish Times[1] newspaper published an article entitled "Priced out of Dublin? Consider Gorey." Two days later, Twitter [2] user @conoraon posted a screenshot of the article and wrote, "I see we've arrived at at the "Priced out of Dublin? Move 100km away from Dublin!" stage of the Irish Times' property coverage." The post (shown below) received more than 260 retweets and 1,000 likes in three days."
