University College Dublin (UCD ) President Professor Andrew Deeks. 

This morning.

Via Irish Times:

The most expensive student accommodation rooms on the Belfield campus are set to increase from €8,815 a year to nearly €10,000 under the plans. Accommodation in the other student housing blocks would increase from €7,114 to €8,000 for the nine-month academic year.

“We’re not out to make money from the students, we’re out to put additional student residences into the market,” he said.

Prof Deeks said while students had reacted “quite emotionally” to the increase, he had discussions with the students union on Thursday “to allow us move forward in partnership”

      ““HOMELESSNESS IS A dreadful thing when it happens to someone, but it is a normal thing, it happens,” according to the chair of a major State housing body.
      Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Conor Skehan said we need to move from a situation where we use words like “homeless’” and “crisis” continuously.
      Skehan is the chair of the Housing Agency, the government body set up in 2010 to advise on policy for housing.”

        Valued at 2 million plus? Deeks- yet an example of an Irish fat cat talking out of his hole about a subject he knows nothing about and never will.
