Glen Hansard & Fr. Peter McVerry: Episode 219

25Nov

This week’s episode focuses on the deepening homelessness crisis in Ireland. When Jarlath spoke to Father Peter McVerry and Glen Hansard during the Apollo House occupation last year, it was believed to be the worst imaginable homelessness situation the country had ever faced and that things could only get better. Instead of improving, today's figures show more people than ever before are now homeless in Ireland.

Father Peter McVerry discusses the lengths that the public need to go to in order to force politicians to make change (5:00), the public's general misguided perceptions of the average homeless person in Ireland (11:00) and the measures that he wants to see taken on a constitutional level to tackle homelessness (17:00).

Glen Hansard opens up about being afraid of a world without compassion (57:00), the incredible work of the Irish Housing Network (37:00), his own connection with homelessness (48:00) and his disappointment with the government and their role in the homelessness crisis (54:00).
