This chapter examines the processes and outcomes associated with the economic boom in Ireland. It focuses on the impact of what MacLaran and Williams call entrepreneurial forms of urban planning within Irish cities. The chapter then analyses current approaches to urban planning practice, with a critical focus on the continuity of threads from the economic boom of the past into the present. It draws on a number of broader urban theories, including concepts of 'the right to the city', 'the just city', and 'commons planning'. The chapter argues about the existence of vacant property and land. The vacant property and land, in the case of the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) in state ownership, provides a platform for a shift in the approach taken towards urban liveability in Ireland.
