THE HOUSING CRISIS is one of the biggest news stories covered every day by The Journal, so we want to take some time to do a deep dive into it and talk to our audience about how it is affecting you. 

As part of The Good Information Project we are preparing to focus our attention on the major problems people are having with housing in this country.

Large numbers of people report feeling like they will never be able to buy a home, or have long-term security where they live, with costs rising quickly and supply reducing due to Covid-19. Others are battling with high rents, as the average monthly rent in Dublin looks set to hit €2,000. 

This is a situation that requires solutions and we intend to create space to consider all the possibilities.

Our journalists Christine Bohan, Cónal Thomas and Aoife Barry are joined by housing activist and academic Rory Hearne, the author of Housing Shock, whose campaigning on this issue has been relentless.
