The words ‘no Irish need apply’ may be a thing of the past but it seems to remain true on some Dublin property sites.

A Facebook advert for a city centre room has sparked a discrimination row after it specified ‘only Indians’ would be considered as flatmates.

The unidentified resident posted on Facebook last Friday that he was looking for three more flatmates to share his one-bedroom apartment, for €400 each. But it wasn’t the over-cramped living situation that raised eyebrows – rather the line ‘only looking for Indians’.

The post attracted a flurry of comments from irate Twitter users who likened the advert to those plastered in London in the Sixties stating ‘no Irish need apply’ and ‘no blacks, no dogs, no Irish’.

When contacted by Extra.ie, the poster said he regretted making the comment as he had since been inundated with abuse. He explained his reason for the post – he knew from personal experience that Irish natives did not appreciate the smell of Indian cooking in a shared apartment. ‘The cooking smell of Indian [food] won’t suit others. So for comfort, I said that,’ he said.

‘From my previous apartment, [non-Indians] don’t like the cooking smell of some dishes,’ he added.

He said he was ‘so sorry’ if anybody had been offended by the advert and pointed out that he deleted it within days.

Extra.ie found several examples on Facebook renting groups that specified a preference for Indian roommates. Phrases such as ‘Indians preferred’ and ‘suitable for Indians’ had been used in posts in the last two months.

The latest advert said the apartment could accommodate three more Indian residents. It features just one bedroom, for a total combined rent of €1,600.

The resident confirmed that four people had to share the one-bedroom apartment but said the beds were separate. He also claimed the landlord was aware and comfortable with the arrangement.

Dáil backs rent freeze but Government will block its introduction .
The Dáil has voted to freeze rents for the next three years - but the Government's opposition to the idea means the measure will not come into effect. TDs voted 83 to 36 in favour of Sinn Féin's legislation to freeze rents for a three-year period after Fianna Fáil said it would support the Rent Freeze (Fair Rent) Bill. The minority Government opposed the legislation after arguing that it would drive landlords out of the market and could be deemed unconstitutional. The bill was supported by a number of Independent TDs who usually support the Government in Dáil votes, including Michael Lowry and Denis Naughten.
