Seriously, fool that I am, I wouldn't have believed that people were expected to live in conditions like this. One renter said that " you don't expect to find conditions like this in a first world country. "! I have news for him , this isn't a first world country .

I was watching it and while it's an interesting subject I had to give up on it after 10-15 minutes as the narrator had an very annoying voice.

This is Ireland's rental market by design. We've had decades to create a regulatory mechanism following European norms to ensure renter rights/ landlord responsibilities, and rent surety. It's not unsurprising when FG came along to pick up the pieces after FF's property orgy, they instead chose to become slumlords using the crash as means to excuse their behavior. Paddy and Mary enjoy their yearly holidays on the backs of others misery.

Yes, the rickshaw guy, he also runs English language "tours", accommodation provided. Some the " accommodation " shown is advertised on Brazilian Facebook pages.

DCC, and the other councils, have a lit if questions to answer, actively discouraged tenants from making complaints, failing to take action when they did inspect, and making HAP payments to landlords of substandard accommodation.

But the exploitation of human beings, mostly guest workers is not enough to watch pure greed at work?

Jasus, wouldn't irish landlords give our historical British landlords a run for their money?

There is far more to this than "rogue" landlords, this is the language school scam in full effect and also the reason why thousands of irish are now "homeless".

......why rent to a "lone" parent for €1,400 taxpayers euros when you can get €4,000 in cash off "students".......welcome to Irelands race to the bottom.

win win for fg/ibec/isme and all the greasy till merchants, lose lose for irish workers.

.......welcome to the ugly face of mass immigration and globalisation !.
