And the beat goes on! Housing Commission Report.

The housing commission was established in 2021 by Housing Minister Darragh O’Brien to figure out what to do about the housing crises in Ireland.  Eh that’s good!

A few weeks ago (two and a half years later) its report was leaked to the Media.  Horror of Horrors!

Out of eighty-three recommendations the most illuminating is “Supply needs to be increased.” Who’d have thought!

I jest! Theres apparently lots of good stuff there. The most encompassing recommendation is a “Reset” to housing policy approaches to basically everything housing, (planning, construction, renting, financing etc.)  Excellent! No problem! We love change, here in Ireland!

They also recommend a referendum on a right to housing……… Yes, that’s right, another goddamn referendum!
