The Liberties of Dublin has historically been home to an industrial working class. Much of this history is related to brewing and distilling, and the associated businesses and trades that came with these industries. However, another industry which has all but disappeared has left a lasting legacy in terms of place names and also in the social consciousness. Weaving and the textile industry in general, has had a long association with the area.
Join Dublin City Council Historian in Residence, Cathy Scuffil, as she explores the many links between the Liberties and Weaving, while making the case to revive the craft in its historic core.
