Published 23 August 2023

When: Wednesday, September 13

Where: In person at 14 Henrietta Street

Cost: €5 / €3 concession

14 Henrietta Street presents Teatime Talks, a series of talks hosted by social historian Donal Fallon, inspired by the history and people of 14 Henrietta Street.

Dr. Jean Clarke worked as a public health nurse in the south inner-city in the early 1980s. She witnessed and shared in the everyday lives of the individuals and families who lived there. Later, she carried out a research project in the area, where she interviewed mothers about the needs and resources of their community.

“My stories today are theirs and mine both; they are more than a description of a set of circumstances, of expected and unexpected events of the everyday. They are word pictures of a coiled spring of solidarity, sentimentality, anger, pity and hope. They are a tale of experiences that deserve narration, a tale of ‘living around here’, ‘living in an area with crime’ and ‘living with your woman beside you.’” - Dr Jean Clarke
