A work in-development

What they did back then? When? Then? The other place, the other world, the past.

I’m always fascinated by those days of old; gone, never to return. My parents era of living and becoming. The working classes of the 1960’s who handed us the batten to then speak well and dream big. They wanted my generation to get an education, a good education. But what did they do to get us here?

This project is the exploration of women’s stories working in Dublin Factories in the 1960’s. The women who left school at 13. Girls who became women overnight.; handed up money , made lifelong friendships, danced till they dropped, fell in love, found independence and contributed to the growing economy of Ireland in the 60’s.

Inspired by verbatim interviews with women around Dublin who worked in varying factories during this period, the sharing will be an exploration of some of their voices and their stories.
