How did the Irish housing system reach breaking point and can we fix it?
The results of Irish housing policy have created a crisis that reaches into every community and region in the country. It increasingly blights the lives of multiple generations. It undermines and conflicts with many other national priorities and strategies. How has it got to this point and what will it take to ameliorate?
Orla Hegarty, Assistant Professor, School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy, University College Dublin, sits down with Muireann Kelliher to discuss how our housing system became so broken, and what we can do to fix it.
