Drawing on the feminist ethics of care-inspired Trace methodology the paper aims to analyse governmental discourses about care in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. It explores whether and how a rapid parliamentary investigation frames care as a value and practice; reveals interdependence of care givers and receivers; reflects on how ‘vulnerable’ identities were ascribed to older people, people with disabilities, and asylum seekers; and applies a feminist perspective to Ireland’s response to COVID-19.
