About this Exhibition

From the chronic housing shortages of the 1960s to the boom and bust years of the early 21st century, the RTÉ Archives show how in less than 50 years, Ireland went from a critical housing deficit with often appalling living conditions to a property glut resulting in ghost estates across the country.

Take a look also at some Irish housing of the past, from medieval Dublin to Georgian homes in various states of neglect and preservation, and see the traditional use of stone in construction.
