The bedsit looks set to return and we want to hear your memories of single-room living

For four years bedsits were banned in the State, but Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy is soon to announce that they are returning as a means of tackling the shortage of accommodation in the rental sector.

It became illegal in 2013 for landlords to rent out bedsit-type accommodation over concerns that much of it was dilapidated, run-down and inadequate for modern habitation.

For many, the bedsit was a way of life and The Irish Times would like to hear your memories of single-room living.
