Photos from Dublin


Dublin is officially known in Irish as Baile Įtha Clia or Įth Cliath (meaning town of the hurdled ford). The English name Dublin comes from the Irish Dubh Linn meaning black pool : a lake now covered that was connected to the Liffey was used by the Vikings to moor their ships. Originally founded as a Viking settlement, the town evolved into the Kingdom of Dublin and became the island's primary city after the Norman invasion.
