any time I'm "in the country" I'm glad I live in Dublin! Horses for courses.
Probably fake profile. Duplication of some other above
The only people who can clean up Dublin at this stage are Globex Corp.
i love Dublin but I live in a nice part. There aren’t a huge amount of places north of the Liffey that I would like to live. Don’t get me wrong, there are some lovely places(stoneybatter, howth, malahide, phibsboro, Smithfield(to a lesser degree.its probably the nearest place to the north inner city I would feel safe) etc. I wouldn’t feel safe in the north part of the city center. However, I would feel perfectly safe in temple bar(even though I wouldn’t choose to spend my time there). Places like George’s street, camden street etc are quite nice.
Another Dub living vicariously though the newspaper property supplement?
"Another Dub living vicariously though the newspaper property supplement?"
If it ONLY was an issue of "newspaper property supplement". Sadly and unfortunately it's not that simple.
And PRETENDING there is no issue will never going to solve it - even if it feels nice and comfortable for some people...
For everyone who denied that this violence took place, there you go:
"Teen gangs are terrorising Dublin streets "without any consequences" "
Thank you for welcoming us in this country
🤔 guess this campaign might be getting harder to flog.
They don't have a clue of what the town is about
There are issues, no doubt about it, but you're safe on the North side of the Liffey. Hundreds of thousands of people live there quite safely. Facebook, boards.ie, Dublin live and other opinion based forums aren't the best places to get your news.
North Dublin quite safe to live? Is this the joke of the year?
Only if you're bed bound.
North Dublin is a huge area, most of it is safe to live. The vast majority of Dublin is very safe to live, im 40 and ive lived in Crumlin, Tallaght, Drumcondra and in Dublin 2 and ive never been a victim of serious crime. You just need to use common sense if you out late at night.
The primary concern here is with the city center not areas off it. Here is the latest from DCC. https://www.dublincity.ie/news/lord-mayor-chair-high-level-street-issues-group
The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Alison Gilliland, is to chair the Dublin City High Level Street Issues Group. This group comprises senior leaders from Dublin City Council including the Director of the City Recovery Taskforce, An Garda Siochana, Dublin Regional Homeless Executive, Health Services Executive and the Ana Liffey Drug Project.
The group was originally established following the 2011 publication of the Better City for All Strategy to promote a more co-ordinated approach to issues related to public nuisances on the streets of the city.
Speaking of her role the Lord Mayor said, “I’ve had various meetings regarding the public’s experiences on our city-centre streets and this is a response to their concerns. I don’t believe in reinventing the wheel but rather using structures, such as this high level group, that are already in place and building on work already done. It will be my responsibility to lead this group and promote strong ongoing co-ordination between our statutory agencies who have responsibility for keeping our city-centre accessible, welcoming and safe.
Through this high level group we will strive for a co-ordinated public health approach to those engaging in on-street substance misuse and a holistic case-management approach to those who find themselves homeless and living on our streets. We will also seek to engender a sense of collective societal responsibility for a safe, clean, accessible, and attractive public realm in the capital city of Ireland.”
The same old guff. Code for we are going to do absolutely nothing.
For my experience, things are getting already worse any single day
Problems all across the North Side with anti social behaviour.
Given WFH I actually started looking to go out from Dublin and settle in a better place here in Ireland. However, now politicians intervened and my company suddenly introduced this mandatory 1/2 days per week in the office -without any need- just not to let people leave Dublin's properties. That's unacceptable
In this area, Smithfield is definitely getting worse
If you are comfortable with public speaking, you should call some radio program like Joe Duffy on the and recount your fear as an immigrant and how the situation is getting worse. Nobody cares about what is posted here.
You'll find that the divide is actually East/ West. Has been for decades.
You're reading too many sensationalist reports and constantly exagerating. There are approximately 1.5 million people living in Dublin according to the CSO and the majority of them live quite happily without encountering any of the terrible things you say are happening daily in every part of the city. You are seriously unlucky if you experience these activities with the regularity you say.
In the past week an elderly neighbour of ours slipped on a footpath in Henry Street and hit her head. She was taken by ambulance to hospital and received stiches in her head and a cast on her arm. Since her accident she has had nothing but praise and good things to say about the help, assistance and kindness she received from passers-by and especially from a group of the so-called 'feral teenagers' some people get great joy in discussing on this thread.
Anyone who finds Dublin so horrendous should maybe think about moving to somewhere that would provide them with the lifestyle they want. Living in an environment that causes such misery can't be good for mental health or stress levels.
All the anti-dublin nonsense is really getting a bit tired at this stage.
Yeah reminds me of old news reports when some residents living in Moyross and Southill would defend their estates to the end despite the reality. 'Lovely place, lovely people' and all that to a backdrop of burned out cars and feral kids. I guess if you live there you have few options.
As I said, there are issues, I spend a good bit of time in the North inner city, I'm from there. Have you been assaulted on the Northside of the city?
I just ran the gauntlet from Fairview to Raheny, on foot! And I didn't even see any kind of skullduggery or was assaulted.
Pfft , I went for a stroll up Talbot Street , across Amiens St and along the quays ,saw nothing , nothing , not a thing , no thing.
The east west divide is true, but in general one or two places aside, the suburbs are safe. The problem is increasingly the city centre.
Soft Boys and Culchies with Mammy Issues = "Dublin is a kip!"
Everyone else = "not so bad."
Well, if you call them "culchies" then they are more likely to call Dublin a "kip". Also, did you read the whole thread, because many of the people complaining about the anti-social issues are from Dublin and abroad.
I don't think Dublin is a kip or "unlivable", far from it, and that sort of language just makes people defensive rather than receptive to hearing about genuine anti-social issues in some parts of the city.
The op is from a different country. I bet the centre of Dublin is hellish for some immigrants, particularly those who look different. Here’s a piece from the IrishIndianChronicle
There’s a large number of people dismissing this, I’ve never had a problem in Dublin but I rarely visit the centre. And I’m Irish. I doubt people are making this up
Only this last year I have been assaulted TWICE. One time in January and one time in June. Both the times I understood they were irish, and both the times the gardai could not help me with the culprits/to find the culprits . I started developing PTSD (please don't make fun/sarcasm about my situation)
