Do you have memories of Dublin’s tenements? Perhaps you lived in a tenement, or knew someone who did. Maybe you worked in or around the tenement buildings. Whatever your connection, we would like to hear your stories.
Your Tenement Memories is a new oral history research project. We would like to talk to people with memories of life in 14 Henrietta Street or other Dublin tenements to grow understanding of tenement life in Dublin, and to connect people and communities with the stories and heritage of the city.
The event will take place in Finglas Youth Youth Resource Centre on Tuesday 19th March. Pop in between 10am and 12noon and chat to out team about your memories over a cup of tea.
If you would like to find out more, call 01 524 0383 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also visiting eleven areas where tenement residents were relocated to talk to people about their memories. You can see a full list of the drop in session locations and dates here:
