UCD Students Union is holding a protest outside Dublin City Council tomorrow.
It's in response to comments by the Chief Executive on student accommodation being converted to short term letting.
Owen Keegan suggested the union get involved in the property market, if they think excessive profits are being made.
It's time to make your voice heard 📢
We've all seen Owen Keegan's disgusting comments about the student accommodation crisis - do you think it's acceptable, to show such arrogance in a time of hardship for so many students?
Now's the chance to show students are united 🙌 pic.twitter.com/XsVPvjzMmZ

The protest takes place at 1pm on Wood Quay.
We’ll be out in front of @DubCityCouncil offices tomorrow letting them know exactly what we think of students being ripped off.👇👇
No more converting student accommodation to tourist stays, we need a legislative ban and investment in cost rental accommodation on our campuses! https://t.co/KUe3eP5MAn
