The issues examined here include: the impact of the house price boom on wealth and affordability- the urban renewal schemes and private rented housing- the management of social housing- the accommodation of travellers and homeless people- rural housing policy and politics. During the past decade, Irelands economic growth has attracted international attention. This book analyses the consequences of that growth on housing and serves as a primer to other countries on the complexities of delivering sustainable housing solutions in the face of economic success.
