Re: Origins of Dublin
I seem to recall reading somewhere that the city of Dublin had got
its name in English from the Irish words "dubh" and "linn".
Does anyone know if this is true??
Also, how come there isn't more of a tie-in between the Irish "Baile
A/tha Cliath" and the English "Dublin", along the lines say of
"Baile A/tha Luain" and "Athlone"??
Thanks for any replies.
