This paper presents a summary of the results of a social survey. The survey was one of a series of studies of social aspects of urban redevelopment and housing provision which the Department of Social Science, University College Dublin, began in 1966 with the encouragement and financial assistance of the Human Sciences Committee. It was primarily an attempt to ascertain the effects of the move to a new housing estate on the lives of the people concerned. Patterns of mobility and resettlement and difficulties encountered in living in a new area were examined in some detail and the aim was to obtain an empirically-based profile of one of the new communities which are a feature of contemporary Dublin. The survey was concerned with preferences about where to live, the implications of the move to a new area for employment, family problems m a new area, patterns of recreation, the housewives' ideas and suggestions about housing design and estate layout, aspirations regarding children's education and married women's interest and involvement in employment.
