TD's and Senator's from outside Dublin are struggling to find hotel accommodation on Dail sitting days, with some resorting to sleeping in their cars.

The Irish Daily Mail reports that a shortage of hotel rooms as tourism recovers from the covid pandemic, coupled with the housing of Ukrainian refugees, has meant that some Oireachtas members are staying in guest accommodation that is over an hours travel from Dublin.

One TD based in the west of Ireland, not named, is quoted as saying that he has resorted to sleeping in his car on two occasions and considered sleeping in his office but was concerned he would set off an alarm.

A Mayo Deputy revealed to the paper that he has stayed in Co. Westmeath, over an hours commute from Dublin, because it was the closest accommodation he could find.
