The Government does not actually want you to be able to buy or rent an affordable home. They have created an unaffordable housing system that is focused on delivering housing as an investment asset, not a home.

Dr Rory Hearne, Assistant Professor at Maynooth University and author of Housing Shock: The Irish Housing Crisis and How to Solve it, has gone viral for his article on TheJournal.ie which details his outlook on various Governments' policies around housing since the Celtic Tiger.

 

The article came at a time when the Government have begun to promise action on investment funds after it emerged a UK based firm had bought 135 out of 170 houses in a Kildare estate.

 

Speaking to Dermot and Dave, Rory explained in detail how these investment funds have impacted on housing in Ireland, and what that means for people trying to get on the property ladder.

 

He also gave his take on the steps that need to be taken by those in power to stop the housing crisis.
