Universities were able to engage in widespread rent hikes because new caps introduced by Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy (above) will not take effect until next week.

To limit the rising of rent
And while that sounds great

So it didn’t achieve what he meant

Richard Boyd Barrett will be collecting signatures at a co-living development site on Eblana Avenue, Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin he has described as ‘Dickensian’ at 12.30pm

There’s a TD who feels strongly that
A person who’s renting a flat
Should be given a place
With just enough space
To start swinging an average cat

In a review being carried out by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) Irish could be dropped as a compulsory subject

A conclave will write a new rule
To govern the last years of school

The newly-elected centre-right government (New Democracy-EPP) in Greece has vowed to implement a smoking ban law in enclosed public places, which has existed since 2008 but never took effect.

That Greek politicians could smoke
All day long at work
With an arrogant smirk
That would make other citizens choke
