Visit to 14 Henrietta Street
BCFE students from the Pre-University Foundation in Teaching (ELT), with students from the Irish Traditional Music Performance and Traineeship in Instrument Making (PTH) visiting the social history museum, 14 Henrietta Street.
The visit to 14 Henrietta Street provided a poignant insight into the social, economic, and cultural life of Ireland through the stories of those who lived in one house over the past 300 years.
From the harrowing stories we learned of the dire consequences of repeated housing policies and accommodation crises over the past 300 years in Dublin. The tragic suffering and gross inequality, arising from colonialism, laissez faire economic policies and the absence of regulations governing building and accommodation, were all brought to life in the recently restored rooms and the narration of our tour guide.
