Moving to the suburbs
Written by 14 Henrietta Street Front of House Coordinator, Gillian Ryan.
It must have felt like a million miles away when people headed to their new homes in the suburbs of Dublin - the country as some would call it.

A home that would have amenities a mother could only dream of.
