The Northside is traditionally poorer, more Catholic and, to some, more 'Irish' -- it is the part you see in Creator/RoddyDoyle films. The Southside is historically richer, more cosmopolitan and more Anglophile (hence the insult 'West Brit'). Northsiders play Gaelic sports and soccer; Southsiders play rugby, which is an upper middle class sport in Ireland. Southsiders see Northsiders as druggies and muggers, Northsiders see Southsiders as... well UpperClassTwit is a very much cleaned up version.

Note that there are no parts of Dublin officialy named 'the Northside' or 'the Southside' -- they are geographical expressions, a bit like the 'Deep South' in America. Trust me, everyone will know what you mean.

To celebrate the ''other'' millennium the city set up a 121 metre (393 ft) tall metal spire in the middle of O'Connell Street. It's... well, it's [[FreudWasRight tall and metal and pointy]], and possibly not the best idea to build in a city with a heroin problem. Still the Spire has inspired a few affectionate nicknames, many of them even printable ('the stiletto in the ghetto', the 'stiffy on the Liffey' or the saying 'There'll always be one prick on O'Connell Street' for instance).

The headquarters of Ireland's main television service, Creator/{{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.

Postal codes on the Northside are odd; on the Southside, even. [[note]] With the sole exception of the Phoenix Park, which is part of the (mostly Southside) Dublin 8 postcode despite being on the Northside of the Liffey[[/note]]

The Dublin 4 (D 4) postcode area is ''so'' Southside that even other Southsiders laugh at people from there. A popular series of books starring a D 4 character named [[Literature/RossOCarrollKelly Ross O'Carroll-Kelly]] (both an UpperClassTwit ''and'' a JerkJock) are a major hit in Ireland.

Dublin (From the Irish ''Duibhlinn'' meaning ''Black Pool'' but its official Irish name is ''Baile Átha Cliath'' meaning ''Town of the Hurdled Ford'') is the capital of UsefulNotes/{{Ireland}}, the [[TheIrishDiaspora third-largest Irish city]] after UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity and UsefulNotes/{{Boston}}, and the largest city on the island with a population of about 1 million, including suburbs, and 1.6 million including the population of surrounding counties.
