Once a thriving shipping hub, the Dublin Docklands fell into disrepair in the 1970s-80s. In the late 1990s, the Dublin Docklands Authority set about redeveloping the Docklands area in an attempt to bring technology and enterprise back to Dublin. The arrival of a new European headquarters for Google on the docks changed everything, with a sudden influx of major technology companies firmly initiating the Docklands as ‘The Silicon Docks.’

Silicon Docks: The Rise of Dublin’s IT Industry chronicles the history of the changing Docklands in Dublin. The first-hand experience of Pamela Newenham journalists gives Silicon Docks a unique perspective on the technology boom on the Docks, Dublin, and the whole of Ireland. Other contributors include journalists and business people directly involved in the redevelopment of the Docklands. Silicon Docks contextualizes the impact of the sudden spurt of technology companies, from the sudden rise in real estate and enterprise in the area to the instigation of conferences and the influx of immigrants. The impact of the Silicon Docks is far-reaching and powerful.
