« Go back
Following on from the success of ‘The Tenements’ on TV3, a new four-part documentary series will see Bryan Murray on a journey to discover the controversial history of ‘The Big House’ in Ireland. The series will tell the story of the servants of these lavish mansions, without whom would not have functioned properly.

Producers of the series managed to trace the descendants of the original house staff by digging through the Strokestown Park archive. The descendants will head to Strokestown Park in Roscommon to live and work exactly as their ancestors did.
