Church Street tenement collapse remembered
Dublin, 14 December 1915 - The Church Street Disaster Committee has completed the distribution of funds subscribed for the relief of sufferers.
In the disaster, seven people lost their lives and two others were seriously injured when two tenements on Church Street in Dublin collapsed in November 1913.
Two children who were orphaned in the disaster – Patrick and William Carthy – have been placed in a boarding school and their education and future welfare are being provided for.
