Your Tenement Memories


Published 25 January 2019

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 a new oral history research project. We would like to talk to people with memories of life in 14 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.

Over the next few months, we will be visiting eleven areas where tenement residents were relocated to talk to people about their memories. There will also be drop-in sessions at 14 Henrietta Street. You can see a full list of the drop in session locations and dates below.

If you would like to find out more, call 01 524 0383 or email memories@14henriettastreet.ie
