Bottlemakers Hall

Bottle makers Hall1

There’s still no word from Dublin City Council concerning the Bottlemakers Hall in Ringsend.

Local Labour Councilor Gerry Ashe said she had posed the question at several meetings of the City Council but failed to get any reply.

The current state of the derelict building has come under scrutiny from residents of Ringsend. The building, located on the Irishtown road, has been left vacant for a number of years with no word on its future. Previously, the hall acted as a social club for Irish Glass Bottle workers whose factory was located nearby. In 2002, the factory closed, along with the hall, ending Ringsend’s 100-year glass making chapter.

The Hall is listed as a protected structure in a planning, heritage and conversation document obtained by NewsFour.
