Early one morning, the Designing Dublin team took the bus out towards north Dublin. Our destination: Clongriffin. Clongriffin is a new development located between Howth peninsula and Dublin City airport. Two days prior to our visit was spent familiarising ourselves with various documents and background information relating to the area; including planning reports, demographics, community development plans, statistics, photographs etc.
All of this material helped us to learn some basic information about Clongriffin. However, when our bus arrived in Clongriffin that day, we quickly realised we had a lot more to learn.
