For the first time since the pandemic arrived in Ireland the coronavirus slipped down the political agenda only to be replaced by the hot topic of housing.

Covid-19 has stalled the construction industry and set back the government's plans to deal with making property available to deal with rising demand.

This week the Your Politics podcast is joined by Sinn Féin's housing spokesman Eoin Ó Broin.

He discusses Irish unity, Sinn Féin's controversial voter database, the Dublin Bay South by-election and investment funds buying up residential housing.

He joined presenter Paul Cunningham and Sandra Hurley.

The podcast can be downloaded here on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Stitcher.
