Starting this week on Newstalk, we’re getting some Home Truths, delving deep into the housing crisis.  We’ll be touching on everything from planning issues to rising rents to how they manage housing in Europe.

We want to hear your stories - email thehardshoulder@newstalk.com or text 53106 for 30 cent.

And it’s with a personal story that we’ll start, because I think this will resonate with a lot of people.  Fiona Cassin has just moved to her 26th rented property - yes, she has moved 26 times.  She and her husband would love to buy their own home in Co Wicklow but the mortgage lending rules have made that a mammoth task.

Fiona, told her story to Shane Beatty on Monday.
