This paper discusses how the immigrant population in Ireland contributes considerably to the Irish economy and how, despite their contributions, many non-Irish live in housing conditions that are less than their Irish counterparts. It proposes a study to determine if differences in opinion exist regarding discrimination of non-Irish groups living in Ireland between Irish nationals and non-Irish nationals. The paper extends the research to compare feelings of discrimination in attaining housing between Irish nationals, who serve as the control group, and non-Irish nationals, who serve as the test group. It is hoped that the study will further research into the area by comparing the feelings of two groups regarding the issue of homes.

From the Paper:

"Non-Irish often decide to set down roots on the Emerald Isle and become an important part of the Irish landscape. According to the 2006 Irish Census, a majority of non-Irish residents live in cities, with the fewest settling in small towns and rural areas (CSO, 2008). A survey of housing arrangements among the Irish and non-Irish residents in Ireland reveals that key differences exist between the Irish and non-Irish population (CSO, 2008). A breakdown of the housing arrangements by national origin reveals that owner occupied housing is the preferred choice among Irish nationals and UK national living in Ireland (CSO, 2008). However, amongst the other ethnic groups, renting is still the preferred method of attaining housing arrangements (CSO, 2008). No reasons were given for these preferences. An exploration of the reasons for this statistic led to the development of the hypothesis used in this research study. "
