Dublin: A Breath of Fresh Air.
The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sports, Paschal Donohoe TD, unveiled a new tourism marketing campaign for Dublin which seeks to reposition the city and county as a destination and secure its appeal to overseas visitors for the long-term future. With €1m earmarked for the first phase, funded by Fáilte Ireland, the four Dublin local authorities and a collection of private-sector partners, the marketing campaign will centre on a new brand for Dublin and will be pitched at potential visitors in the UK and Europe throughout the Autumn.
“What we have here in Dublin is unique. We have a young, vibrant, happening city with a rich culture and heritage which is nestled between the wide open spaces of Dublin Bay and the Dublin mountains. There is no point, however, in being Europe’s best kept secret and I very much welcome this new campaign to reposition the city and county and ensure that its unique appeal cuts through in the international marketplace.”

Jiggy is an Irish trad band with a difference.
‘Laethanta Saoire’ is a tune that was composed in the 90s by the legendary guitarist Steve Cooney, and although the band have played it many times it has never been recorded or released… until now that is!
Jiggy are from Dublin Ireland, and as such wanted in this video, to portray Dublin with all its true grit and character.
Jiggy is an Irish trad band with a difference. Mixing traditional Irish music, hip hop beats from the 1990s, and whatever else comes to mind.
“New Irish band Jiggy put some serious pep in the step of traditional Irish Music.” Irish Central

Behind rotting signs and shutters regularly daubed with graffiti is one of Dublin's true hidden histories. The city's oldest shop, Thomas Read's Cutlers has lain vacant and unused since 1997.
SAVE THOMAS READ SHOP FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

Hidden away in a secluded site adjacent to the Grand canal in Inchicore, the 19th century ‘garden’ cemetery at Goldenbridge was the first Catholic cemetery to be laid out after the passing of the 'Act of Easement of Burial Bills' in the early 1800's.
Before the passing of the bill Roman Catholics living in Dublin City had no cemetery to bury the remains of their dead. By Law all burials could only take place in Protestant churchyards with fee’s been paid to the relevant pastor and no prayers could be recited. In 1823 Daniel O’Connell campaigned to change this situation, his goal was to acquire land were Catholics could be buried free and without any harassment. In the middle 1828 the Catholic Association purchased 3 acres of land 2 miles from the City of Dublin for the sum of £600 from Mathais O’Kelly.
The Cemetery is now open to the public after may years of been a forgotten Dublin Graveyard.
