Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8
The North Wall area is situated on the North Side of Dublin’s river Liffey, and inhabiting some of the most valuable real estate in Europe, the people here are indomitable and full of humour and passion. An intense pride and sense of place exists here. The area is in a state of great change with one of the largest expansions of financial and tech businesses presently in progress. It remains to be seen how the existing community survives and how those arriving integrate.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a limited edition of postcards from from the North Wall Series.
A short documentary film by Paul Kelly entitled North Wall Stories will feature on the Nationwide programme on RTE during May 2019.
The exhibition is supported by the Dublin North East Inner City.
