EPISODE 116: UP THE STUDENTS

‘water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink’

This famous line from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem seems perfectly apt when we’re (still) talking about student accommodation. Following a heap load of frustration communicated from UCD SU’s Ruairí Power to Owen Keegan, CEO of DCC about the change of use of PBSA to short term student lets, Owen Keegan suggested, perhaps, the SU could build their own.

In this ep, we’re down at the protest organised by the UCD SU at DCC HQ talking to the students affected by this accommodation crisis and ensuing glib remarks.

We’re also throwing the budget in the sea and rediscovering the Home & Away theme tune.

And most importantly, we’re finally back together.
