Residents of Dublin City Centre Apartment Complex Alarmed by Rat Infestation Crisis

Residents residing in St. Michan’s House, an apartment building on Greek Street in Dublin city, express distress over the escalating rat infestation that has permeated their living spaces. The situation, described as unbearable, has prompted residents to catch multiple rats daily in traps, particularly in outdoor areas, including a children’s play area.

Concerns about the severity of the issue have been heightened as reporters from Dublin Live observed numerous dead rats within the complex during a recent visit. A resident expressed profound shock, stating, “The rats have been here since June. The kids are terrified; I feel terrified. There’s a lot of people here that are terrified. We are not living like this.”

Residents emphasised the urgency of the situation, describing it as an “emergency” and disclosed spending over €100 on rat traps in a single day. The gravity of the infestation is underscored by residents setting traps from 6:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. one evening, capturing six rats in just two hours. Concerns are raised about the safety of children playing outdoors, with one resident highlighting the challenges faced when attempting to allow children outside.

Expressing frustration, residents claim a lack of action from Dublin City Council despite pleas for assistance. There is a growing fear that if the rat infestation is not promptly addressed, the rodents may infiltrate the living spaces within the flats, exacerbating an already dire situation.
