No Crisis Here
No Crisis Here is a social commentary on the housing crisis in Ireland that, arguably, has been in place for over 100 years (cf. Dublin InQuirer). In October 2018, a cross-party motion in the Dáil supported the declaration of a national emergency in regards to housing and homelessness by a majority. However, the government was not obliged to act on this motion. Exploring the current state of the Irish housing and rental markets, Ailbe highlights the lack of governmental support and the structural issues that effect the most vulnerable people in Irish society. His work questions the common understanding of the term homelessness and brings into focus the mental as well as financial struggle of those living in emergency accommodation.
