Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Dublin (aka Eblana, Dubh-linn, Baile Atha Cliath) has always held a special place in the history of Irish literature and culture. From the earliest days of Ireland's colonial history, Dublin served as a bridgehead/outpost of English/British civilisation. As the largest city in Ireland, it was also known as the "Second City of the Empire" during the 18th and 19th centuries. During the first two decades of the 20th century Dublin had the doubtful distinction of having some of the worst slums in Europe. At the end of the 20th century postmodern and glitzy Boomtown Dublin became a byword for economic growth during the Celtic Tiger era.
