A Minimum Income Standard for Ireland, is a study funded by the Department of Social Protection and carried out by the Policy Institute at Trinity College in conjunction with the Vincentian Partnership for Social Justice, to establish the cost of a minimum standard of living for Irish families. It showed that low-income families and those that are unemployed do not have enough money to achieve a basic standard of living. Miriam Gormally began by asking Sr. Bernadette Mahon of the Vincentian Partnership to explain the importance of the findings and also to explain the Christian imperative behind creating a more Just Society.
