Residents of the North Wall area say development of the Docklands has destroyed their community.
They are concerned about future expansion plans and have called on their local councillors to help.
Local Tony McDonnell from the North Port Dwellers Association says their children have no where to play since the builders moved in, their homes are almost permanently in the shade, there's disruption from early morning and late night Luas trams and anti-social behaviour as a result of some concerts.
Tony explains what they have to put up with: "Drinking outside of houses before and after concerts, kicking of doors and windows on numerous occasions, ringing doorbells, banging windows, urinating against hall doors on some occasions, walking over and across parked cars, graffiti on hall doors."
The recent Drake gigs were particularly bad according to McDonnell: "I had to stand at my own hall door to defend my property. The first night it was like living in Beirut. I stood there and watched a lunatic coming up the road, whether he was drunk or on drugs or both and he ran at the door of number 3 trying to kick it in."
Residents have had to put up with development at Spencer Dock, the Convention Centre, and the new Central Bank. On top of that New Wapping St has been closed for 2 years, and the Luas line has taken two years to complete.
Tony also highlighted the adverse effects of living on Mayor Street, right on the Luas line: "Residents have moved to the back of their houses because you're trying to get away from the Luas. But what about the next phase of the SDZ? That's going to be at the back of us. Where do we go then?" He's also described the proposed development of the Dart as the "Irish equivalent of Times Square."
Councillor Christy Burke said: "There's nothing but greed going on here from massive developers, they couldn't care less about the small man or woman on the ground, the small house on the ground, the community that's been there forever and ever."
Independent Councillor Nial Ring said: "It's not going to get better, it looks like its going to get worst, and all we can say is that you have our support and any initiatives that we can come up that you can come up with to make your lives a bit more tolerable. Unfortunately you're never going to get back to the little street parties you used to have there, the balloons out, the beautiful flower boxes, kids running around the place, it looks like that gone forever, that's unfortunately a legacy of the Docklands.
He added: "This wouldn't happen anywhere else because it wouldn't be allowed."
