House prices in the Republic of Ireland have increased by 2.8% in the year to August.
Almost all the gains are being driven by the Dublin market where prices are now 11% higher than they were in 2012.
Outside Dublin, prices are almost 3% lower than they were a year ago.
House prices in the Republic are still 49% lower than at their highest level in early 2007.
