Lecturer: Mary Muldowney, Dublin City Council,Historian-in-Residence, Central Area
The railway works at Inchicore have played a significant role in the operation of the Irish railway network since they were opened in 1846. Over more than 170 years, the Inchicore works have also been a focal point of the development of the village and the surrounding area, providing employment and housing and contributing to the development of the area. The lecture will be followed by a discussion session, in which it is hoped that local residents will share their memories of living in the neighbourhood of ‘the Works’.
