The rental crisis in Galway is very concerning and the Government doesn’t understand how severe the crisis is.

That’s the view of Galway Sinn Fein Deputy Mairead Farrell who told the Dáil there’s an endless stream of people attending her office to seek help for their housing situation.

Deputy Farrell says there needs to be a ban on rent increases and there also needs to be a tax break for renters.

She once again highlighted the huge number of properties available on short-term platforms like AirBnB – but a total lack of properties on rental platforms like Daft.

She has been giving more details to Midwest Radio’s Michael D McAndrew.
