DUBLIN & BELfAST
The fist documented history of Dublin begins with the Viking raids in the 8th and 9th century. The Vikings settled on the southside of the mouth of the Liffey, named, in those centuries, the Dubh Linn, that means Black Pool in Irish.
Despite stone fortifications, Dublin town was attacked oven the next two centuries but always recovered. By the 11th century Dublin prospered, closing trading links with English towns and soon became the most important town in Ireland.
The name Belfast comes from the Gaelic 'Beal Feirste' derived from the River Farset which means 'mouth of the sandy ford'.
The docks of the Farset became the first quaysides of the city and the river flowed beside docks on High street into the 19th centuary.
There are 496,000 inhabitants in Dublin.
