    Over the past twenty years, Dublin’s inner city has been transformed socially, economically and physically. Recent shifts include the emergence of new industrial and financial spaces, the large-scale construction of private apartments targeted at middle- and upper-income groups, the rapid escalation of land and house prices, the displacement of indigenous residents and locally-relevant employment together with the disappearance of much of the city’s traditional industrial fabric. The pace of change in inner Dublin has been remarkable and its initiation set against a backdrop of widespread inner-city decay and dereliction, high levels of unemployment and poverty and a prolonged period of depopulation and disinvestment.
