I lived in the flats in Oliver Bond for 2 years and I never had a days trouble in it. It’s a vibrant area with loads of young people. They’re working class, though and it’s a working class culture and vibe that predominates.
Ptg is right though regeneration is just a nicer way of saying gentrification. Not the same but similar, I lived in O’Devany flats as a child. My mother had moved there from the tenemants with her family in the 50’s. O’Devany had the same tenemant culture. In the 80’s the corporation offered grants for people to buy houses. We were a family of 5 in a one bed flat at that time so we took it up as did loads of people from town. O’Devany went downhill from there, the empty flats were used by the corpo as emergency housing and for troubled cases. The area became infamous after that and the areas that us ex-townies moved to also became infamous as families were seperated from their support networks in town.
TL;DR uprooting lower socio-economic groups en-masse leads to trouble that takes a generation maybe two to work out.
