It's after 24 new homes went on sale in Dublin 15

The government's been called on to tackle a situation that's left house-hunters queuing for days to secure a home.

It's after the sale of 24 new homes in Dublin 15 led to people queuing overnight yesterday.

That's despite it being five days before the houses actually went on the market.

Labour spokesperson Councillor Andrew Montague says the issue is a symptom of the current housing market: 'The fundamental problem is the lack of supply. We think the government needs to start building houses themselves and not just wait for the private sector to step in'.
