Connemara Senator condemns letting of what he describes as glorified corridor in Galway city for €640 per month

A Connemara based Senator has condemned the letting of what he describes as “a glorified corridor” in Galway city for 640 euro per month.

Sinn Féin’s Trevor Ó Clochartaigh, is calling for further resources to be put in place for the inspection of private rented accommodation in Galway City and County in light of Estate Management Agencies advertising a corridor, dressed up as a flat for that price.

He told Midwest News he has seen a property advertised recently by a prominent local property management company for letting in the east of Galway City, which is nothing more than a dressed up corridor and could be in breach of the standards laid down in regulations by the Department of the Housing, Planning and Local Government.

The regulations outline the minimum standards that must be complied with in relation to health and safety for tenants.
