Fifty Plus in Ireland 2011

Resource type: Research Report

Trinity College Dublin |

Older people in Ireland play a valuable role in supporting their families and communities, are generally happy with life and have significant unmet health needs, according to this report by Trinity College Dublin.

This is the first in a series of four reports from The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA), a large-scale, nationally representative, longitudinal study on ageing in Ireland. As the most ambitious study of ageing ever carried out in Ireland, it aims to gain a better understanding of the lives of older people for establishing policy, and targeting research and resources where there is the greatest need.

TILDA is funded by the Department of Health and Children, Irish Life and The Atlantic Philanthropies.
