One man, whose photo of a housing queue went viral, has described the rental market as 'carnage'.
Conor Finn was waiting to see a house in Dublin on Tuesday, when he was met with a massive queue of people.
He says over 100 people were waiting in line for the rental property in Drumcondra.
"This is what a house viewing now consists of in Dublin", he wrote.
An hour later, Conor says he left the queue "after no real movement or chance of viewing the house".
He says people were still joining the end of the queue as he left.
An hour later and I’ve left the queue after no real movement or chance of viewing the house tonight.

He told Lunchtime Live: "Like many people at the moment, trying to find a house in Dublin is just carnage at the moment.
"I actually found myself really fortunate that I got word back that I was going to be able to see a viewing.
"Most of the time it's dead air, you just do not hear back".
He says he got a call earlier on Tuesday about the property, and was told to turn up between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.
"I thought I'd be very polite and not go before the time, in case there was any other viewings.
"What I didn't realise is about 100+ other people had also been told the exact same thing.
"A queueing system [was going] down the entire street".
Conor says he posted the pictures "just to kind of show what the situation was like.
"I think it sparked a good conversation that needs to be had.
"It was kind of like queueing up for a club, but I don't know why people weren't being let in", he says.
He believes this was also down to people chancing a viewing.
"There wasn't actually any pictures of it available online, so the whole point of it was: 'Look, it may be a kip but let's give it a viewing'.
"I think that was a lot of people's situations."
He adds: "You're not in a position to choose where you live anymore - it's more you are trying to make yourself the prime candidate for this room".
