'The worst slums in Europe. That’s where Dublin came from. Out of the shit and into the world.'

Life long Dublin docker Patrick has passed away surrounded by his beloved wife Esther, his son and his grandchildren. As they remember his life, Esther recounts a tale they are yet to hear.

A new play by Lee Coffey, In Our Veins follows their family through 100 years of Dublin, from the notorious madams of the Monto to love in the dark tenements.

This is the story of a Dublin City that no longer exists, where it came from and the people that helped build it.
