In 1974 there were plans for the redevelopment of the Liberties. In this extract from the programme 'Seven Days' the people of the Liberties give their reactions to plans for the demolition and development in the area.

The opening sequence features Brendan Grace singing 'A Liberty Boy Am I' in a local pub.

The message from the residents interviewed is clear. The heart of the Liberties is the notion of community, a theme which lives on today.

This episode of 'Seven Days' presented by Brendan O'Brien was broadcast on 8 February 1974.
