Matea Leka told the Taoiseach she was ‘barely keeping her head above sea level’ when it came to her rental struggles

Matea Leka (32) has written to the Taoiseach to highlight her personal experience of the housing crisis – from scammers to mouldy rooms.

Ms Leka, originally from Croatia, has lived in Ireland since 2019 and works full time as a product builder at Boston Scientific in Cork, while simultaneously studying part time at Technological University Dublin. She also occasionally works in another part-time job.
