Blanchardstown lies in the western outskirts of Dublin where in the 1960s was a rural area with villages. Since then, the town has grown to 90.000 inhabitants (2006) in mostly low rise terraced housing
The choice of the location of the town centre at Blanchardstown has its genesis in the Dublin City Development Plan of 1972, but was only built in 1996. Since then, the American-suburb style shopping centre has become a retail magnet and has greatly contributed to the growth of the city.
