The Glass Bottle site in Dublin 2 has space for 2,000 homes, but poor access

A €22 million bridge is needed to allow for the construction of 2,000 homes on the derelict Irish Glass Bottle site.

There is currently a severe shortage of new homes in Dublin, with just 3,000 built last year even though 35,000 are needed by 2018.

But funds need to be provided for a new bridge to unlock the former Irish Glass Bottle site in Ringsend, which has lain vacant for the past five years.
