VIDEO: Moving to Finglas in 1964

THIS incredible footage shows families moving into their new houses in Finglas in 1964.

The news report captures the optimism of young people after spending their first night in their Finglas homes.

They speak of their gratitude to Dublin Corporation for providing them with quality homes and talk about the hardships they endured in previous accommodation in the city centre.

Anyone who ever lived in Finglas will cherish this short video. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
