This week saw the release by Journeyman TV of the video report “Let Them Eat Cheese”, a five minute feature on the current state of the Irish economy, the IMF/EU bailout and people’s opinions on being given free cheese at Christmas by the government.
Ireland is a country of 4.5 million, where 455,000 people are currently unemployed. Homelessness is at an all-time high, charities claiming they are seeing more than double the amount of people seeking help than three years ago. Official figures say there are 4000 homeless people in Dublin alone. This video rush captures scenes of Dublin not usually seen in the tourist brochures.
