Qualitative Info

In a report of 2009 the Immigrant Council of Ireland and Focus Ireland looked into the housing experiences of four migrant communities in a particular area of Dublin. Among its findings, the report highlighted that some of the private rented accommodation rented by migrants was of poor of insufficient standards - this issue however is likey to be similar for Irish nationals living in the same area and is not specific to persons of a migrant background.
