Launch of Report on Right to Housing May 2016

On 4 May, MLRC launched its Report on the Right to Housing in Ireland. Judge Catherine McGuinness formally launched the Report.

Paul Sweeney, Chair of TASC Economists’ Network also presented at the launch on the economic context for the right to housing.

The launch took place on 4 May, in the Georgian Suite, Buswells Hotel, Molesworth Street, Dublin 2.

MLRC’s report on the Right to Housing in Ireland assesses the protection of the right to housing in Irish law and outlines the impact that a Constitutional right to housing would have.  

For a copy of the report, please contact MLRC on 01 4537459 or click to read here.

TDs, local councillors, and staff of organisations working in the field of homelessness were among the attendees.  Many thanks to all who attended and for the vibrant and engaged Q&A that followed the formal launch of the report. We are very grateful for your support and thorough consideration of this proposal. 

On the morning of the launch, MLRC spoke on RTE’s Morning Ireland and on Newstalk’s Pat Kenny show about the Report.
