Your Tenement Memories

Tuesday 18 Feb | 10am-12pm

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.

If you would like to find out more, call 01 524 0383 or email

Tea & Chats

Saturday 29 Feb | 11am-1pm

Join us for a cup of tea, biscuits and a chat about your thoughts and ideas for your community, the local area and Richmond Barracks.

We have a vision for Dublin where culture connects everyone and everything, and Tea & Chats is a great way for us to hear about what culture means to you in the place where you live.

If you have thoughts you’d like to share about your area, or you’re curious to hear what other locals have on their mind, we’d love to see you there.Tea & Chats are always free of charge and no booking is required. 

All are welcome and you can drop in anytime from 11am to 1pm.

Calling all Makers

We’ve got big plans to create a dedicated workshop or maker space in Richmond Barracks where locals can unleash their creativity and come to make, create, craft, build or design in a wide range of mediums.

The space will be built around the needs and wants of local makers so we want to hear from you.

We’re hosting informal tea and chats sessions to share ideas and do some collective brainstorming. If you have an idea you’d like to share, or you’re curious to see what it’s all about, drop in to see us on the below dates.

Tuesday 11th February 10:30am to 12pm
