Allotments in Dublin 8
Article Posted: Thursday 12th May, 2011
Cllr Criona Ni Dhalaigh advises that allotments will be coming on line soon at Weaver Square, off Cork Street, (Old Chamber Street site)
It's not that handy for Inchicore but is still in Dublin 8.
These allotments are available to people resident in the South Central Area only. Schools, Youth Clubs, Residents Associations etc can apply.
Successful allotments/community gardens are already up and running on Bridgefoot Street (they even have their own chickens), and one on South Circular Road beside Dolphins Barn Church.
The beds will come with 12inches of topsoil and fully fenced at a cost of €150 for an 11 month lease. I think that demand will outstrip supply so plots will be allocated by a lottery.
