New information shows that East Galway TD Sean Canney acts as a landlord for six properties across the county.

He also has a share in a retail property ‘for the purpose of renting’ in Galway City.

The data is part of the Register of Interests of members of Dáil Éireann -published yesterday – which contains information about every TD.

Noel Grealish TD is letting two properties:  a house in Claregalway and an apartment in Dublin. He also owns 15 acres of farmland in Carnmore, Oranmore.

Michael Fitzmaurice TD, in the Roscommon-Galway constituency, also owns lands in Strangeforth, Keelogues, and Curragh, all in Williamstown, Co. Galway. All land holdings are listed as being for farming purposes only and that none of these lands are used for development as they are rural farmlands.

Denis Naughten TD owns one acre of land at Drum, Athlone, Co. Roscommon.

Deputies Catherine Connolly, Hildergarde Naughten, Eamon Ó Cuív and Anne Rabbitte are not letting any properties.

Other information included in the report shows that the only gift An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar received was an Honorary Golf Membership card for 2018.

Danny Healy-Rae owns 55 acres of farmland and Michael Healy-Rae is the TD with the most properties being rented out.
