This Research Paper presents selected findings from a primarily qualitative study of homeless women in Ireland. The study set out to conduct an in-depth examination of the lives and experiences of homeless women with specific attention to their homeless ‘pathways’, that is, their entry routes to homelessness, the homeless experience itself and, possibly, their exit routes from homelessness. Sixty women, seventeen of them migrant women, were interviewed in depth for the purpose of the study. This paper focuses specifically on selected findings arising from the stories of the migrant homeless women.
