    RESCuE is an FP7 funded project that examines the patterns of resilience during socioeconomic crises among households in nine European countries. The project is led and co-ordinated by Dr. Markus Promberger of the Institute for Employment Research (IAB), Nuremberg, Germany. This paper is a technical report on the fieldwork carried out by the Irish RESCuE team1 . In particular, it provides a description of the local contexts of the research sites; observations from the field; a discussion of field access, contacting strategies and difficulties; sampling criteria and methods; and the process of conducting qualitative and photographic interviews2 . The paper was originally produced as the Irish national report for Work Package 3 (D3.16) within the RESCuE project.
