The Tenements on TV3

By Lisa Marie Griffith

I am currently watching the Tenements on TV3, presented by actor Brian Murray. If you haven’t been watching (you can catch up online), the programme is exploring tenements in Dublin by focusing on the tenements in Henrietta Street. Shockingly, there were tenements in Henrietta Street right up until the 1970s. The show features one brave family, the Winstons, who were born and raised in one of the Henrietta Street tenements who then return with their children to spend 3 nights in cramped conditions of a 1911 tenement not an easy- task they stayed last winter during the snow! While some of the introductory history in programme was a bit over simplistic, and so not necessarily accurate, the programme has maintained my interest.

    The latest proceedings of the royal irish academy features articles on 19th and 20th century public housing that may be of interest to those watching this programme.
