Exploring Household Debt in Ireland - Main Report
3rd March 2020
This report contributes to a renewed discussion of household debt in the Irish context and explores the current problems and trends related to debt and access to credit amongst households, concerning non-mortgage debt.
Our research highlights the needs of the most vulnerable households in Irish society, including those who are in the lowest income brackets (bottom 40%), renters (in the social and private rental sector) as well as single-parent households.
We also map the national policies and government services at work to address debt and related issues.
