The Fair Care Bunch

This morning.

The launch by The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission of new research entitled “Caring and Unpaid Work in Ireland” with the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI).

The research shows almost half of women in Ireland and 30% of men provide care for others on a daily basis and that Irish people do the third highest amount of unpaid work in Ireland.

The report was launched with the participation of TV Presenter Brendan Courtney, who has spoken of his personal experiences of care related to his father, and by Bernie Bradley who alongside being a full-time Social Inclusion Officer with Monaghan County Council, is a Member of the Commission’s Disability Advisory Committee and parent of a daughter with Down Syndrome.

Meanwhile, have we reached peak Peaky?

Only YOU can decide.

      Agree.
      Speaking of boxset- inspired styling, Heather Mills was looking very Claire Underwood at her statement yesterday.

    The (partially) state-funded ESRI is a joke, in my opinion, any of its research should carry health warnings.

    The fully state-funded Human Rights Commission (what is it? €7m a year?) is just irritating. How many children are in emergency accommodation again?

    “a full-time Social Inclusion Officer with Monaghan County Council” Seriously? That’s your tax dollars. What the eff does she do on a daily basis?

  3. Barry the Hatchet

    “Irish people do the third highest amount of unpaid work in Ireland” I think you mean the EU there, BS.
