Poppintree (Irish: Crann Phapáin ), is a neighbourhood located in Dublin, Ireland bordered by Glasnevin and Finglas. It is part of Ballymun. The area includes Poppintree Park, the Poppintree Sports and Community Complex and Irelands only IKEA store.
Poppintree is derived from Pappan's Tree, named in honor of the 6th century abbot, Saint Pappan, who built a small chapel in nearby Santry. The area was the site of a large tree under which was held an annual commemoration service to Saint Pappan on the last day of July. The services ceased by 1845.
