Grangegorman Histories implementation plan

06 April 2023

Explore the many activities planned for the period 2022-2025, which will continue to engage with the history of the site.

Read our Implementation Plan 2022-2025.

Grangegorman Histories is a public history project of Dublin City Council, Grangegorman Development Agency, Health Service Executive, Local Communities, National Archives, Royal Irish Academy and TU Dublin. Grangegorman Histories aims to raise awareness of the multi-faceted histories of this area through an ambitious, wide-ranging and challenging programme that is always respectful and recognises the sometimes-distressing nature of personal stories.

The Grangegorman Histories Foundation Document, published in May 2020, included our Implementation Plan for the initial three years of the project. Many of the activities outlined in that plan were undertaken successfully - almost all online - and their outputs are still freely accessible on our website.

The benefits of the project have been established, and we are extremely pleased that all the Grangegorman Histories partners remain committed to it and that funding has been secured for a further three years. Today, we want to share our new Implementation Plan for the period 2022-2025, as agreed by the Expert Working Group in December 2022. As was the case with the first plan, these activities will engage with the history of the site from the perspectives of People, Places, and Practices. 

We look forward to engaging with many people - locally, nationally and internationally - in order to achieve our mission through these activities.
