The Lifeline Project – A Film by Gregory Dunn

On the 8th of April 1961, the last steam train ran the mile-long stretch of what once was the Great Midland and Western Railway to Liffey Junction from the Broadstone railway terminus. The intervening fifty years has allowed nature to reclaim this inaccessible green corridor and it remains Dublin’s hidden secret garden.

The Lifeline Project is indebted to Gregory Dunn, film maker extraordinaire, and An Taisce Green Communities Programme, our sponsors,  for this, the first, Lifeline Project film.

  1. Fantastic footage, great to see what’s unseen by so many of us

  2. That’s Greg’s specialty, revealing the unseen or unrecognized. The DIT Student’s Learning with Communities Program Lifeline Project research is also bringing the project alive in many different ways. Take a look at another post which has a link to the 2010 architecture project. I will be uploading more of these projects over the next while.
