About The Project
Residents living around Wolfe Tone Park have witnessed the demise of the area through neglect and mismanagement by Dublin City Council and event organisers. In particular, the redevelopment of the space in 2001 that retained only some of the original lawn area. The remaining lawn was removed after a month-long event in 2006.
The Wolfe Tone Park Community is committed to campaigning for the restoration of Wolfe Tone Park (Square) and surrounding streets for the benefit of local residents and visitors to the area.
