Before the Boom: building houses in Kilbarrack, 1951

Take a trip down memory lane…

BUILDING PROJECTS IN Ireland existed long before the dreaded phrase ‘Celtic Tiger’ was ever uttered – and were a different animal altogether.

This film shows houses being built by a group of men on Kilbarrack Avenue, Dublin, in 1951.

For more videos, photos and memories of Dublin in the 1950s and 1960s, check out Liam Kelly’s Kibarrackstory.ie.
