Case study
Dublin: towards a new phase of regeneration

A first wave of the regeneration of Dublin’s Docklands started at the end of the 1980’s. The site was sparsely populated and those who lived there were connected in some way to the port activities. As a result of this regeneration, there is now a new community of 25,000 residents and 30,000 workers. The regeneration is not fully completed. A new phase is now underway further to the east which will be driven by tourism and the cruise industry. An opportunity for the AIVP to discuss with Eamonn O’Reilly, CEO of the Dublin Port Company.
