    Seamus Coffey concludes that out high rates of VLWI are not due to household composition.

    We have high rates across all household types.

    The European Commission has been on Ireland's case in relation to this for several years, particularly through the European Semester process. Each year, Ireland would usually have a Country Specidfic Recommendation (CSR) that referenced this. This explains, in part, whiy Ireland published an Actional Plan on Jobless Households (https://www.welfare.ie/en/pressoffice/Pages/pr250917.aspx) back in September 2017.

    2017 CSRs - https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/inf...ns-commission-recommendations_-_ireland_0.pdf - see paragraph 12 and CSR 2 and the end of the document.
