About 30 squatters have been living on a site in Grangegorman since August 2013. A sudden attempted eviction took place on Monday the 23rd of March but my understanding is that the squatters have managed to remain.
While photographing the city I come across many buildings and sites that could be used to house people who have become homeless [even on a temporary basis]. Considering the high degree of homelessness in Dublin I am surprised that squatting has not become rampant. Currently squatting would make a lot of sense but for some reason it does not appear to be happening to any great degree.
