Owen Keegan suggested the students union should enter the property market if there are excessive profits being made.

UCD Students Union will hold a protest outside Dublin City Council's offices today, calling for the local authority's CEO to resign.

It's after Owen Keegan suggested the students union should enter the property market if there are excessive profits being made.

The SU had previously raised concerns about student accommodation being used for short-term tourist lets.

 

 


The Tánaiste has said he thought a controversial letter from Mr. Keegan was a Waterford Whispers article.

He also said it wasn't the city council's fault the Students' Union didn't know how planning applications work.

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has joined Taoiseach Micheál Martin in saying the letter should be withdrawn
