The gap between the rich and the poor in Ireland is continuing to grow, according to the latest assessment from the religious lobby group CORI.
The organisation says the gap is increasing every year, despite the country's prosperity, with one-in-five people still at risk of poverty.
CORI says this is one of the highest levels in Europe and shows that Ireland's wealth is not being spread around evenly.
The group says it is particularly concerned about the large number of people who are at risk of poverty despite living in a household headed by someone with a job.
It wants the Government to set targets for improving the situation and to implement policies that can achieve these targets.
