Owen Keegan suggested UCD students' union gets into the housing market itself.

The Junior Higher Education Minister is calling on the head of Dublin City Council to apologise for 'condescending' and 'disrespectful' comments.

It's after Owen Keegan suggested UCD students' union gets into the housing market itself.

He made the comments in a letter to the organisation, after it complained about student accommodation being used for short-term letting.

Minister of State, Niall Collins, says the remark was inappropriate.


Sinn Fein's Housing spokesperson Eoin O Broin has called on Eoin Keegan to apologise and to enter into meaningful dialogue in order to resolve the problem.
