Glasnevin (Irish: Glas Naíon, meaning "stream of the infants", also known as Glas Naedhe, meaning "stream of O'Naeidhe" after an ancient chieftain) is a largely residential neighbourhood of Dublin, Ireland.



A mainly residential neighbourhood, it is located on the Northside of the city of Dublin (about 3 km north of Dublin City centre). It was originally established on the northern bank of the River Tolka. It is bordered to the north by Finglas, northeast by Ballymun, Whitehall to the east, Phibsboro and Drumcondra to the south and Cabra to the west.

Glasnevin is part of the Dáil Éireann constituency of Dublin Central, whose four elected representatives are former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern of Fianna Fáil, elected in 1977; Independent Maureen O'Sullivan, elected in 2009; Joe Costello of the Labour Party, elected in 2002; and Cyprian Brady of Fianna Fáil, elected in 2007.
