Local TD hits out as rents continue to rise in Limerick

Sinn Finn TD for Limerick City, Maurice Quinlivan.

LOCAL Sinn Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan has hit out at government TDs in Limerick after his party’s call to immediately introduce an emergency three-year ban on rent increases for existing and new tenancies.

Deputy Quinlivan said that renters in Limerick need immediate support.

He also called for the Government to put a full month’s rent back in every private renter’s pocket and increase supply of affordable properties to rent and buy.

“Families, workers, and young people deserve and need secure and affordable housing, and affordable rents.”

“Yet last week’s report from the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) told us what we all knew — that there has been a shocking increase in rents across Limerick under the watch of this Government.”
