A 19 year old Marian Finucane in a student occupation of 45 Saint Stephen's Green where they are carrying out work to restore the partially demolished building.

Patrick Gallagher talks to Marian Finucane about her motivations for spending Christmas week cleaning door posts on Stephen's Green. Finucane feels it is her responsibility as an architectural student and as a Dubliner to protect these buildings.

Finucane practised architecture until 1974 when she joined RTÉ as a continuity announcer, later becoming a presenter. In 1979 she received a Jacob's Award for her work on the programme 'Women Today'. Finucane also presented the radio programme 'Liveline', and worked on television programmes 'Consumer Choice' and 'Crime Line'. She now presents 'The Marian Finucane Show' on RTÉ Radio 1.
