Blanchardstown (Irish: Baile Bhlainséir) is a large suburb of Dublin in Fingal, Ireland, located 10 km north-west of the city centre. It is within the historical Barony of Castleknock and is in the Dublin 15 postal area, the Dublin West electoral constituency and the county of Fingal (following the abolition of County Dublin as an administrative division of the state). It is that Council's largest urban area. The 2011 Census recorded a population of 68,156 in Blanchardstown and its immediate environs.
Blanchardstown has grown up in the shadow of its near neighbour, Castleknock, and they have a shared common history until well into the 19th century, when their development diverged. The name Blanchardstown comes from the Blanchard family, who were granted their estate some time between 1250 and 1260. The name 'Blanchard' is thought to come from the French word blanch, meaning white, and could refer to white or fair hair. The townland has an area of over 454 acres. Blanchardstown was a rural village in western County Dublin until the late 1960s, when the first housing estates began to be developed. Blanchardstown developed in tandem with neighbouring settlement Castleknock, both of which grew rapidly from the early 1970s to the present. During the 1970s and 1980s, the village became subsumed into the suburban fabric of Dublin. The Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown (ITB) was established in 1999. A criminal gang from Blanchardstown became notorious as "The Westies"; their leaders were killed in Spain in 2004.
