Where you can watch ‘A Finglas Story’ on TV or online

Thursday sees up to 80 people attend the premiere live screening of ‘A Finglas Story’ – the three-part documentary mini-series that looks back at the recent history of the Dublin suburb, from the post-war years when it was a sleepy, picturesque rural village of whitewashed cottages, through the turbulent years of growth when the Dublin Corporation housing schemes saw the population boom to over 53,000, until today when it is a vibrant, multicultural community. The three half-hour episodes – “The Clear Stream”, “Growing Pains” and “Communities Together”, will also be available to view on Dublin Community Television (DCTV) and, finally, online through YouTube. Here are the details.

If you have Virgin Media then you have DCTV. It’s on Channel 802. The first episode of ‘A Finglas Story’ is scheduled to screen there at the same time as guests sit down to watch it at the live premiere screening – 7.30 on Thursday night (September 14). For those who can’t catch it then, it will be screened every night on DCTV at 7.30 for the next week. Thursday September 21 will see Episode 2 commence a similar weeks run at the same time of 7.30 and the final Episode will run for a week the following Thursday.

There are, of course, those who are not Virgin Media customers. For them, an online premiere has been arranged on YouTube for Sunday, September 24 at 3pm.

We hope you’ll enjoy and share. The story of Finglas is unique in many ways, but it’s also the story of so many other Dublin suburbs.
