Transparent Water

Water quality is a key issue for citizens. There has been a major investment by Irish Water. A large sampling regime is in place and a lot of data is available going back several years. The data is currently presented on Irish Water website in tabular format. This can be hard for people to access and understand.



The marriage referendum prompted me to look at how to get married in Ireland. The administration and bureaucracy is crazy! It is administered by the HSE, and there is a lot of information online it is very hard to decipher.


Dearest Ireland

Dearest Ireland is a place where letters to the future of Ireland are collected, published and shared with the world – a vision for the future in the context of commemorating the events of 1916.

Dearest Ireland is inspired by the Dearest Scotland project. Dearest Scotland was created as a bottom-up response to the Scottish Independence debate. The letters collected were exhibited in the Scottish Parliament and published in a book. The Dearest Scotland framework has been made available by the organisers for re-use in other countries and a Dearest India project has also been created.



Citizens are responding to the city’s needs faster and more effectively than ever. By self-organizing and co-creating innovative solutions they tackle problems arising in the urban environment.

The problem we often encounter that there is a lack of information, lack of transparency and lack of knowledge sharing among existing groups in Dublin.

Collaborations intends to enhance collaboration and creative innovation in Dublin City. We are looking to connect existing projects and communities with interested citizens by creating a platform to showcase their work and an online space to help managing community organization.
