Transforming Parnell Square

October 31st 2013

We are creating a dynamic cultural quarter in the heart of the city at Parnell Square. This bold and visionary project will fulfil the City’s ambitions for a ‘Civic Spine’ connecting the capital’s key historic places. It will be a new public landmark; a destination that will inspire physical and economic renewal; aspire to the ethos of interculturalism; a place for all to meet, learn, create and exchange.

  • Congratulations on this initiative.
    I hope the complex will incorporate a dedicated intercultural and ethnographic centre that will include a depository that will contain material related to all the diverse ethnicities and Diasporas on the island of Ireland that will contribute to the further cultural integration of our population

    • Dear Mr McCue, Thanks for your positive comments. We are happy to confirm that a commitment to interculturalism and diversity will be at the heart of our plans for the City Library and Parnell Square Cultural Quarter. Thanks again for your interest in the project.
