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.

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' or the 'stiffy on the Liffey' for instance).

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.

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.
