This paper explores the state of the Third Sector in Ireland. It analyses the emergence of the Irish welfare state; its scale and policy impacts; the social consequences of the EU/IMF/ECB "Bailout" for the welfare state; communitarianism as an alternative "Big Society" policy, and finally the case for reinventing the Third Sector as a "social left".
