Your Tenement Memories returns


Published 14 April 2022

Update: The last round of Your Tenement Memories sessions ended in June 2022. If you'd like to find out when we are running new sessions, you can sign up to our newsletter.

We're inviting you to share your memories of tenement Dublin with us.

Your Tenement Memories will kick-off with an Open Day on Tuesday, 3 May from 10am - 12pm and 2pm - 4pm in 14 Henrietta Street.

We are collecting the memories of those who lived in a tenement, knew someone who did, or worked in and around the tenements.

The stories and memories of the many families that lived in tenement buildings across Dublin are a powerful account of history. By 1911, more than 100 people were living in number 14, and a further 850 people lived on Henrietta Street alone.

We welcome you to pop in and reminisce, so that we can capture your living history and preserve it for generations to come. In May and June we will be hosting Your Tenement Memories sessions in lots of locations across the city.

We would love for you to drop in and share your memories over a cup of tea, and we will be announcing more dates in the coming weeks.

You don’t need to book in advance but if you have any questions or would like to talk to a member of the team before coming along, you can contact Tracey by emailing memories@14henriettastreet.ie or calling 01 524 0383

Your Tenement Memories

Your Tenement Memories is a series of ongoing conversations and events with people across the city that gathers memories of tenement life in Dublin for 14 Henrietta Street.

The Culture Company’s previous work collecting and preserving stories of the lives of Dubliners through tenement times has been recognised internationally for community participation and inclusion with its awards of European Heritage Days (Council of Europe 2019) and the prestigious European Museum of the Year (Silletto Prize 2020). Your Tenement Memories is supported by the Heritage Council under its Heritage Capacity Fund 2022.

By listening and learning, we preserve and share stories and connect people to the heritage of our city.
