The `mobility turn? in sociology challenges any easy equation of `society? with a given territorial area. This approach allows us to link the study of migration with the study of other forms of mobility, to examine the origins of mobility within social structure and the impact of mobility on social structure. The chapter discusses four different examples of mobility in contemporary Ireland: auto-mobility and car dependency; migration as mobility through Ireland; business travel and mobile working; second home ownership and mobile property.
