Stories of the Pandemic: COVID-19 and Job Loss in Ireland

28 April 2020

About this project

This collection of stories reveals the multiple layers of uncertainty people are facing at the moment due to the COVID-19 public health emergency – and their own reflections on the challenges that may lie ahead. This first, specific collection looks at the experiences of workers and job loss.

*Note that the names and some details of these stories have been changed to ensureanonymity*

These first 10 stories were collected via phone interviews over a two week period from the 3 April to the 16 April 2020. This project is on-going, and we are looking for more individuals affected by Covid-19 to share their experiences with us.

If you would like to share your story, do not hesitate to get in touch with the TASC administrator John White at
