New RTÉ documentary searches for Irish people at home and abroad to tell their own stories of what home means to them given Ireland’s current housing crisis

A new RTÉ TV documentary is asking members of the public to share their experiences of what home means to them in the current housing crisis. From houses large or small-handed down through the generations to students leaving their family home for the first time to live in student digs, and emigrants hoping return to Ireland where rents are at record levels, every one of us has our own experience and idea of “home.”

Perhaps you are in the process of moving back to Ireland for work, or you are moving home for love or family, or maybe you are planning to bring a loved one home to their final resting place in Ireland.

If you think your story of "home" is worth telling, then RTÉ wants to hear from you!

A spokesperson for the producers behind the RTÉ documentary said:

“The idea of home and housing is part of the Irish national psyche. From our obsession with house prices during the Celtic Tiger to the hugely difficult conditions of the current housing crisis, every one of us has a different story to tell of life at home in 2019. The beauty of this documentary idea is that there is no one fixed idea of what home can mean. We would love to hear from anyone who is interested in sharing their story with us on RTÉ TV.”
