Default daft.ie

I know it's a daft question, but I've been curious as to what 'daft' stands for, other than the price of housing in Ireland at the peak of the boom.

I think its named after the Irish that bought houses in the Celtic Tiger boom years, and are now in negative equity trying to sell them for 200% less than what they paid for them.
Its just a catchy website name really. Easy to remember like donedeal.ie
