Maurice Quinlivan said : “Renters in Limerick are continuing to see their rates spiral out of control, as Fine Gael refuse to take radical action to address the problem. Limerick has been particularly hard hit with huge rent increases. Rents are continuing to rise to unsustainable levels. This is not a sustainable situation.
