Dublin North East Inner City

Creating a brighter future

Keep up-to-date with the programme implementation board delivering social and economic regeneration of Dublin’s north east inner city. You can read the newsletter below.

In July 2016, Enda Kenny’s Government launched a major initiative for  Dublin’s north east inner city to oversee the long-term social and economic regeneration of the area.

To support the work of the Ministerial Taskforce, Mr Kieran Mulvey was appointed to engage with the local community groups, representatives and other interested parties, and to report back with specific recommendations. The Mulvey Report recommended a number of new structures and appointments to lead this work.

To date, the chairperson of the group has established the Programme Implementation Board  (PIB) and four sub groups of the board are set up and meeting regularly.

The four sub groups are focussing on the following areas:

  • Crime and Drugs
  • Education and Training
  • Family, Children and Youth Services
  • Physical Infrastructure

The NEIC PIB is working collaboratively with the community, businesses and statutory agencies to create opportunity and bring about lasting change.

“I am determined that the NEIC Initiative will be successful and
make the North East Inner City a safe, attractive and vibrant
living and working environment for all.” -Micheal Stone, Chairman of the Programme Implementation Board, NEIC.

A Programme Office was established and is headed by the independent Chair of the Board. The Programme Office supports the work of the Board and is based in the Dublin City Council Central Area Headquarters at 51-53 Sean McDermott Street Lower, Dublin 1.

The NEIC programme office is working on communications and engagement, funding and administration, assisting all sub-groups, supporting the Chair of the Board Michael Stone, and regularly meeting with the community.

You can keep up to date with the implementation board and the programme office by following their newly launched website – www.neic.ie
