A CHINATOWN FOR DUBLIN?
What value might an officially-designated Chinatown bring to Dublin?
Although it has no official status, Google Maps has classified Dublin’s Parnell Street as the city’s Chinatown district because of the concentration of Asian businesses and restaurants operating around this area.
At this panel event, Dr Ziene Mottiar (lecturer in Tourism Entrepreneurship, DIT), Kieran Rose (Senior Planner, Dublin City Council), Lorcan O’Connor (Director at Carroll’s Irish Gifts) and James O’Brien (campaigner, Make Chinatown Dublin Official) discuss how Dublin and the Chinese community might benefit from such an initiative and consider some of the potential pitfalls.
The panel will be chaired by Hazel Chu, Head of Brand and Corporate Communications at Diageo.
