Dublin Local History

This thousand year old city on the East coast of Ireland has had a dark and turbulent past.

For the first part of the 20th century, strife and unrest tore Dublin apart as it involved a messy and violent divorce from Britain.

Today, it is known as the 'party capital of Europe' with its thriving business and economy and the ability of the Irish people to have fun, under any circumstances.
