We spent two days meeting with various people in Clongriffin; community workers, architects, planners and residents. Their level of passion and optimism was very inspiring and we learned a lot from them. During the afternoon we met with Paddy who ran the Trinity sports club. Trinity sports club was established in the late 80s. It features a number of sporting facilities such as a swimming pool, basket ball court and social club. We asked Paddy if many people from newly built area had joined the club, he told us that not many had joined.
