Stoneybatter has its fair share of writers, artists, artisans, actors, journos and food bloggers. Soon this district of the city will have a good few builders too, and a lot of students eventually. About twenty thousand students and staff, all piled into a “new” third-level college at Grangegorman.

That’s where DIT is consolidating its various schools and departments from 39 sites into the one campus.

The demolition of various old buildings is well under way. Machines like sauropods are munching and grazing at the old buildings as we speak.

Here’s a new video of their work. It’s by the Grangegorman Development Agency, so don’t blame me for the music – or the bits where the clips switch into colour negatives!
