People who lived in the Dublin Tenements, or who knew someone who did, are invited to share their stories at an open day at the Dublin Tenement Museum tomorrow.
'Your Tenement Memories' runs from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm in 14 Henrietta Street, Dublin.
Those who lived in a tenement, knew someone who did, or even worked in or around the tenement buildings can drop in and reminisce, so that living history can be captured and preserved for generations to come.

The museum said that a key part of the initiative is to connect with tenement residents who were relocated from the city centre to the suburbs such as Drimnagh, Ballymun, Crumlin, and Cabra in the 1970s.
A series of drop-in events will run in these areas over the coming months in local libraries and community centres, to encourage people to share stories of this huge historical shift.
