The politics of old age

Martha Doyle

Manchester University Press

Chapter 5 examines the constituency which older people’s interest organisations in Ireland seek to represent and how they strive to work with and represent this constituency. It examines member’s perspectives on identity politics and their views on old age welfare benefits. Focusing on the notion of collective identity or identity politics it explores whether identity formation is consolidated or defined in older people’s interest organisations and the implications of this for the organisation of older people’s interests.

Keywords:   Members/membership, collective identity (building), age-based benefits, political activism, medical card protests, advocacy
