LOCALS near University College Cork have welcomed a proposed move to crack down on raucous house parties.
Residents complained of noise from houses rented using pandemic payments during lockdown.
The Magazine Road and Surrounding Area Residents Association welcomed all-party support in Cork City Council which saw a motion passed calling on the Government to introduce legislation regarding management, maintenance and standards specific to houses of multi-occupancy.
The residents recently expressed fears they would see another summer of “Magaluf-style parties” by young people for a second year, after being notified by responsible landlords they were on the hunt for rentable houses in the area.
They had hoped a successful case taken against a landlord following anti-social behaviour would act as a deterrent.

But resident Aidan Cahill said that while the outcome would send out a message to landlords and students that drunken parties are not acceptable, their fears had once again been raised as summer approached.
He said: “Landlords are contacting us saying they are being inundated with requests for the summer.
“Our fear is the noise will start again as none of these young people have any valid reason for moving in here over the summer. Most of them are from Cork.”
