Dublin City Life

Life in Dublin was not always easy for our interviewees; poor housing and living conditions were the experiences of many people in their early lives. However, strong family ties and a deep sense of community are a major feature in their stories. This exhibit, Dublin City Lives, is divided into four sections, Community, Home Life, Living and Work and Family. See below for a link into each of these sections.
