In 2000 the Ballymun Regeneration Project commissioned an extensive historical research of Ballymun and the surrounding area. This research stretched from the beginning of the seventeenth century right through the building of the Ballymun Estate in the 1960s, up to 1997 and the beginning of the re-development. The resulting History of Ballymun, in two volumes, is available in the Dublin City Library and the Ballymun Library. Read a synoposis of the history.
Running alongside this project was an Oral History Project which Eneclann managed in conjunction with Ballymun Regeneration Ltd. This involved interviewing a large number of people who had lived in Ballymun from the time of the development in the 1960s. This oral history is now available at the Ballymun Community Archive.
