Event description
Cathy Scuffil Historian In Residence will host a Talk about Dublin Housing Crisis in Revolutionary Times 1915-1923

About this Event

One hundred years ago, led by Alderman Tom Kelly Chairman of the Housing Committee, Dublin Corporation set out to address the city’s reputation of having the worst housing in the British Isles. This talk looks at four estates built on Dublin’s south side against a backdrop of unrest, war and revolution and how the Corporation overcame difficulties of the times to provide modern, sanitary housing for citizens.
