Desperate Houses Revisited RTÉ One, Thursday 7.00pm

Programme 3 - Milltown

The Desperate Houses team are back and this time they're revisiting the homes they helped to declutter, revamp and redecorate in previous series.

The first three programmes are presented by Clodagh Conroy, follow Clodagh as she heads back to visit "desperate houses" in Laytown, Ballymun and Milltown. Avril Murphy Allen presents the next three programmes revisiting Galway, Finglas and Carlow.

Will Clodagh and Avril find that the people they helped have changed their old ways and made good on their promises to maintain their newly decluttered rooms or have they fallen back into old bad habits?

In the third programme in this revisited series presenter and interior designer Clodagh Conroy surprises Marie Melia and her daughter Caitriona.

Marie hadn't been able to pass a charity shop or resist a car boot sale for as long as she could remember. This has resulted in a home which was over-run with ornaments, tea-sets and books.

Clodagh and the team were able to convince Marie to let go of all her "treasures" and to appreciate some newly found space, but a year later, has she gone back to her own ways?
