Dublin boom sparks housing crisis, long-term rental woes for residents
December 24, 2018 / SHARING
SHARING a studio flat in Dublin with two other people, Greek security guard Aris complains about the housing crisis that forces him to live in cramped conditions. "It's quite rough," said Mr Aris, who splits the 850 euros (S$1,329) a month rent for the 30-square-meter flat. With scant storage space, personal belongings are relegated to the ground. A kitchen hob is within arm's reach of one mattress, while the other two are pushed together.
