    This working paper is a qualitative analysis of socio-economic practices of resilience in Irish households. It was produced as the Irish national report for Work Package 4 (D4.19) within the FP7 Project, ‘RESCuE: Patterns of resilience during socio-economic crisis among households in Europe.’ The paper includes an overview of the socio-economic characteristics of participating households in Ireland. It discusses the narratives of hardship provided by Irish participants and considers the varying practices adopted within households to cope with hardship. It concludes with an analysis of the degrees of hardship and forms of resilience experienced and displayed across different household types, and discusses some of the limitations of the concept of resilience.
