New allotments in the Liberties

Dublin City Council has opened new allotments in the Liberties for local residents and community groups.

Weaver’s Square, off Cork Street in Dublin 8, was recently converted into 27 allotments – with 22 plots for residents and five plots to be used by local community groups.

The site has been vacant since 2008 but a recent joint initiative between Dublin City Council’s Liberties Area Office, Parks Department and Community Section helped create new land suitable for locals to use.

Rubble was stripped back and removed to make way for new topsoil and a water point and storage containers for equipment were also installed on site.

The allotments are offered on an annual lease, sized 50m2. However, due to the limited number of allotments there is a waiting list. To apply for an allotment for January 2012, contact Dublin City Council Liberties Area Office on 01 222 5200.
