Your Tenement Memories

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 an oral history research project by Dublin City Council Culture Company for 14 Henrietta Street. We would like to talk to people with memories of life in 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. In 2019 we met many people who had connections to the tenements and were privileged to hear some fascinating stories. Over the next few months, we are visiting more areas where tenement residents were relocated to talk to people about their memories.
