Ireland has had a housing problem for a decade but in recent days Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael are panicking

There was a time when the Irish had no problem with building stuff. We were so good at it that we sent generations of our offspring to help the British and the Americans build their cities. Now we have a crisis — we haven’t enough dwellings for our people to lay down their heads in at the end of the day.

People come here in need of shelter and work, just as our families went to other places down through the generations. But we’re so bad at building things these days that we cram new arrivals into overcrowded huts. Céad míle fáilte.
