"People are paying too much in rent and this has to be better controlled."

That's the stance taken by the Housing Minister off the back of a new report into how rents have increased once again.

The report by the Residential Tenancies Board shows that rents across the country are up by 77 euro on last year.

The national average monthly rent is now €1,094, while in Dublin people are paying an average of €1,587 a month.

Responding to the report, Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy says:

"I will shortly be introducing new rent protection measures in to the Dail.

"I'll also continue to pursue measures to see longer leases and tenant protections when properties are sold.

"And of course home-sharing will be tackled in the very near future.

"All of these new measures will help us move closer to a more stable and more mature rental sector."
