Cobh in Co. Cork and Maynooth in Co. Kildare have been added to the list of rent pressure zones.

That means rents in those areas cannot be raised by more than 4 percent a year.

It comes as it’s emerged that rents across the country grew by almost 8 percent (7.8) in the last quarter of 2016, compared to the previous year.
