Abstract: Alongside the ever growing theoretical literature on men and masculinity, it remains important to offer accounts of men that are located within men's own experience. This paper presents evidence on men's lives and their attitudes to work in the Republic of Ireland. Recently Ireland has experienced one of the most dramatic economic transformations in Western Europe. However, regardless of the longevity of such economic change, a sizeable part of the Irish population has not benefited from this economic success. Although unemployment has fallen, men make up over seventy per cent of those still unemployed. Using data collected from 170 Irish men, during 1998 and 1999, this paper contributes to gender debates by documenting and exploring how men experience working life in Ireland.
