Date:

An interview with a couple of the people involved in The Barricade Inn, the squatted social centre on Parnell street, including a video tour of the interior.

The interview looks at the history of the building, including its connection with the 1916 rising and Tan War. The state of deliberate dereliction it had been left in, the clean up operation and the multiple uses the building in now serving as The Barricade Inn and finally the motivations of those involved in keeping the space running.
