The Morals of housing and the living conditions of travellers in the 1960s.
Celtic Film Productions present 'Enquiry' looking at The Morals of Housing in Ireland.
The programme is an enquiry into the problems of housing the aged and the poor. The opening scenes of the programme show the variety of poor living conditions in the city.
This excerpt from the programme describes the poor living conditions in which the travelling community live. Many are living in make-shift rag tents. The lack of proper housing results in exposure to the elements and threats to health.
The interview was carried out by Miriam Hederman. The programme was produced by Hugh Spencer-Phillips, and directed by Tom Hayes. The ballad is sung by Fionnuala Mac Lochlainn.
This episode of 'Enquiry' was broadcast on 3 February 1965.
