Students Protest Over Dublin City County Manager's Comments

Students from UCD are taking to the streets of Dublin this afternoon to protest over what they have described as the Dublin city council manager "disgusting" comments.

Owen Keegan's suggested the student's Union get into the property market, after they complained about student accommodation being used for short term letting for profit.
They say it's not acceptable to show such arrogance in a time of hardship.
The Union's president Ruairi Power says Dublin City Councils response to the accommodation crisis is very disappointing
