Abstract: Directed urban regeneration in Ireland only began in the later part of the twentieth century, driven by a combination of public policy, tax incentives, and pressure to respond to inner-city decay. The term urban regeneration here is taken to mean the conscious project, a publicly directed, area-based initiative to revitalize parts of the city in social, physical and economic terms. Generally this regeneration had a city-wide impact, and key sites or areas came to represent wider changes in how Irish inner cities and towns were perceived, inhabited and developed.
