TEATIME TALKS: THE DUBLIN HOUSING INQUIRY
With 14 Henrietta Street and Donal Fallon
30/09/2020 at 12:00am
In 1913, while Dublin was in the midst of labour unrest and the Lockout, two tenements collapsed on Church Street. This triggered a Housing Inquiry, published the following year, which was damning. How did the housing picture in Dublin change in the early 20th century, and what does the Housing Inquiry tell us about Dublin then
Teatime Talks is a series of talks inspired by the history and people of 14 Henrietta Street. By listening and engaging with historians, experts, former tenement residents, local residents and their families, we continue to uncover and record the history of 14 Henrietta Street. Teatime Talks responds to the things we learn, to highlight hidden histories, elaborate on recurring themes and tell the stories of the house and its people.
This talk will be shared on 14 Henrietta Street’s Soundcloud and social media pages on Wednesday 30th September.
Booking not required.
