FG minister Michael Darcy claims there are plenty of places to rent in Dublin at a fraction of high cost

Following on from Leo Varadkers less than impressive outing yesterday on high rents (he hadnt
read the governments own report from September and didnt know that Daft.ie figures do include
new tenancies)

up springs junior minister Michael Darcy with claims that there are plenty of cheap places to rent in Dublin.

Minister says there are rents in Dublin 'at a fraction of headline figures'


Lets test his claims by searching Daft.ie for 3 bed properties.

A quick search on daft.ie shows no 3 bed properties at less than 1200 euro. Not a single one.

There are 7 houses to rent in all of Dubln for 1500 or less. Thats SEVEN !!!

There are 32 houses for 1800 euro or less of Dublin. Yes 32 !!

How far removed from reality are these people ?

I have a life.
It is of no real surprise that FG minister Michael Darcy can come out with this remark. Where is the 5million€ communications council....thought they were there to co-ordinate the lies being spun.

Im waiting for some minister to blame tenants for "Gaming the System" and then Damien English
will plead for people to stop discussing rents for fear the americans may hear it.

Heres the bizarre bit from Darcys contribution:

“There is a rental issue, but there are also areas where renting isn’t as expensive as it is on a couple of streets towards the river and the other side of the river.

WTF does that mean ?

He's actually saying that the lesser citizens should move into ghettos.
