By and large the "feud" is little more than a cliché, seeing as most Corkonians and pretty much all Dubliners just ignore it. The only exception is when it comes down to sport, but even here the Corkonians are much more enthusiastic about the whole feud thing than the Dubs. Notably, the Northside/Southside divide also exists in Cork. However, South Corkonians are in no way the same as South Dubs.

Also, if it isn't already 1027, it will be within a few months, and then 1028, and then 1029, and then you get the idea. Examples Are Not Recent.
Officially, Dublin celebrated its millenium in 1988 (making the city a spry 1026), but that was just a brazen excuse to hold a party: the [[HornyVikings Vikings]] established a stronghold in the Liffey River back in 841 (and even before that there was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eblana Eblana]]). Dublin was an important Hiberno-Norse kingdom for centuries, before the Normans arrived and turned it into the centre of English (and later British) power in Ireland for centuries.

Not only is it not necessary to use Main/ to link to an article in Main/, but it's the wrong namespace for this article.
The headquarters of Ireland's main television service, {{Main/RTE}}, are located in the Dublin 4 district, and until around the 1990s, most Oar-Tee-Ee presenters had a Dublin 4 accent -- apart from Dustin, the children's TV puppet turkey who took his Northside accent to the ''EurovisionSongContest'' in 2008.

Cork is the second city in Ireland (not including [[StrokeCountry Belfast]]), and the largest county. It also has the most jingoistic inhabitants. Corkonians like to think of their city as the ''real'' capital of Ireland -- culturally, and at sport at least, and carry on a strong--but entirely one-sided--rivalry with Dubliners.
