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.
