"Spreading city" County Dublin by Red_Hugh

centre of the country (demographically!)

County Dublin is dominated by the spreading city of Dublin which sometimes seems to cover the whole county and which has extended its tentacles throughout the rest of the province of Leinster (one of the 4 in Ireland)

Around 40% of the Irish population live in and around the city so County Dublin is facing constant presssures on its land bank and as a result sadly many beautiful places have been engulfed by suburbia. Traditionally North County Dublin was the main market gardening centre in Ireland and the land around Dublin is some of the best in the country for agriculture but . . . modernity beckons!
