RTÉ presents a week-long series of programmes which capture where we've come from over the last 18 months, take stock of where we are now and try to identify ways in which we as a nation can get Ireland from crisis to recovery.
Across the week, a number of RTÉ Television programmes will reflect the after-effects of the boom and bust: from the reality of unemployment and life in so-called "ghost towns" to positive stories of businesses and families who are thriving in spite of the recession.
Other programmes will look at the bigger picture, ask where to from here and present challenging ideas as to how we as a nation can move on from the shock of economic collapse.
Aftershock: Where To Now? is a one-off documentary made up of four specially-commissioned television essays which take stock of where we are now as a nation and argue for radical change if we are to emerge from the current recession with real and lasting success.
In a special edition of The Frontline to mark Aftershock week on RTÉ, Pat Kenny will chair a live studio debate around the ideas presented by Dan O'Brien, Matt Cooper, Richard Curran and Justine McCarthy in Aftershock: Where To Now?
