In 1936 The Press Highlighted Slum Conditions, Mostly In Dublin But Also Reported On Similar Conditions In Other Major Cities. Limerick Was Reported On, With The Dillon Family Of White Wine Lane Allowing Reporters Into Their Home.
The most notorious of these slums was called “the lanes,” a network of narrow, winding streets near the city centre. The lanes were known for their extreme poverty, crime, and violence. In response to public outcry over the conditions in the lanes and other slums, the government implemented a program of slum clearance and rehousing in the 1930s and 1940s. The program was not without controversy, as many residents were displaced and the new housing was often located far from the city centre, leading to social isolation and economic hardship for some families. However, it did lead to significant improvements in living conditions for many people in Limerick.
