Launch of ?Renting in Ireland? ? edited by Lorcan Sirr

Posted: 2 October, 2014

A new book entitled ‘Renting in Ireland: the social, voluntary and private rented sectors’, edited by DIT lecturer Dr. Lorcan Sirr, was launched yesterday by Housing Minister Paudie Coffey TD.  Published by the Institute of Public Administration (IPA), Renting in Irelandbrings together for the first time a range of housing experts and practitioners to discuss and analyse the role and experience of renting housing in Irish society.  Topics addressed in the book include the private rented sector; the social rented sector; and other relevant issues including renting and minorities, legislation, space standards and the experience in Northern Ireland.   


Following the launch of the publication Dr. Sirr said “It is hoped that Renting in Ireland will help to contextualize discussions on renting, inform debate, and provide insight into how renting affects society and ideas on where to go next for a sector that has never quite received the attention it deserves.”
