Fe University – Cities of the World – Dublin

May 14 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Dublin: Story of a City, with Mary Magray

Viewed from the mountains south of the city, Dublin today appears as a sprawling metropolis of more than a million people—a far cry from its beginnings some time before the 9th century. Then it was just a small settlement of several thousand men, women and children hugging the Liffey River. Since then, its story has been a roller coaster ride, the city rising and falling in significance, in wealth, and in centrality to the greater story of Ireland itself.

Not surprisingly, the traces of structures no longer visible on its landscape as well as those remaining today tell a vibrant story of all that has taken place in the city over time. From the now long-gone Viking cabins and Norman half-timbered houses to the great cathedrals, Georgian row houses, historic pubs and coffee houses, and immense (and immensely impressive) civic buildings, these structures tell of the throbbing life of a great city on the move for more than one thousand years: Dublin.
