Blog, 7th Dec 2012

Brian Barry, PhD Candidate, Trinity College Dublin and Trainee Solicitor with Mason Hayes & Curran worked with MLRC as an intern for a period of 3 months this year.  Brian became an integral part of our small team and he experienced first hand the issues Mercy Law Resource Centre encounters on a daily basis with the most marginalised in our society.  We wish to thank Brian and acknowledge the contribution he made to our team.  We also acknowledge the generosity of MHC both in terms of their financial support of the Centre and the provision of much needed key staff.

Brian stated the following in an article he wrote in the latest edition of the Irish Review of Community Economic Development Law and Policy,  “Although the essence of the problem of homelessness is simple – where a household does not have a place to call home – the legal framework is complex. The rights and entitlements of households conflict with the limited resources available.”

MLRC are pleased to see this article published which highlights the work of the Mercy Law Resource Centre, and we congratulate Brian on its publication.
