In This Reboot Republic, Rory talks to Dara MacGearailt, a primary school teacher in his mid 20s, who has emigrated to Australia because of the cost of rent and living in Dublin. This is the lived reality and explains how the housing crisis is forcing a generation of young people to leave Ireland, it’s about the emotional impact of emigration, the crisis facing primary schools – some might classes have to close in September because teachers cannot afford to live in Dublin – about the normalising of living at home, infantilisation and why we must not accept the housing crisis and emigration as the Irish default setting – because its not.
