Students due to stay at an accommodation complex in Tralee have been told their places are no longer available to them.

The Kerry Lee Student Village was a long-standing complex catering to students at Munster Technological University.

However, the owners of the 54-bed village have decided to take back their houses 'for the purpose of long-term letting'.

USI President Beth O'Reilly says this isn't the first time this has happened

"It's something that was primarily an issue last year."

"Post - covid a lot of student accommodation complexes decided they would switch to long term rentals instead."

"That put a huge strain on the market but this year we're seeing it again."

"It's just exacerbating a problem that's already existed - we just do not have enough beds for the students."
