    • We all know how inspirational U2 are both at national and international level. The band sent a powerful message and gave great hope to the people of Dublin and Ireland that great things could be achieved. This rock band put Ireland on the world map and reinforced our identity as a nation of scholars, story tellers and artists. Stories for Boys was the name of their first song which they performed on the Late Late Show in 1979. It is part of the album Boy and was an introduction to U2. Although all songs tell a story this one clearly states what the story is and reveals all in its‟ title. In a nut shell, boys are always looking for heroes and role models. Little did they know at that time that they would become heroes and role models themselves……11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 3
    • Sean-nós singing is one of the finest of the traditional Irish arts. It is often characterized by unaccompanied performance in Irish, free rhythm, relative lack of vibrato or dynamic change, and especially by the use of rapid, melismatic ornamentation. Sean-nós was originally practised as part of daily routine at home, work and play. “Songs were made to accompany the work inside and outside the home, to express the many emotions-love and sadness of daily existence, to record local and other historical events and to often mark the loss of family and friends whether by death or by emigration”. Many of the songs typically sung sean-nós could be viewed as forms of love poetry, laments, or references to historical events such as rebellions.11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 4

    • A report published today shows how social mobility in Ireland is well below the OECD average and largely dependent on the educational attainment of ones parents. Research confirms that Ireland, along with southern European countries such as Greece and Italy, offers less educational mobility than the average OECD country. Nordic countries, on the other hand, were the most mobile of those surveyed. This, in turn, has a serious effect on overall social mobility. A separate OECD report released in 2009 supports these findings. If you live in Scandanavia, you have a 100% better chance of becoming wealthy than if you live in US.11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 9

    • In Ireland, class distinctions are thought of as quintessentially English: the popular impression is that rigid social class demarcation was left behind with the ending of landlordism and the demise of the Anglo- Irish ascendancy. However, the term class does not imply snobbish or deference: instead it refers to the manner in which ones position in the labour market determines ones life chances. In Ireland, educational opportunities, income, health, and even mortality are strongly related to class position. Such inequalities show no signs of declining. Such advantages are also transmitted between generations.11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 16

    • Liberty Hall (Irish: Halla na Saoirse), in Dublin, Ireland is the headquarters of the Services, Industrial, Professional, and Technical Union (SIPTU). It was formerly the tallest storeyed building in Ireland at 59.4 m (195 feet) high[1](until superseded by the County Hall outside Cork city), and is currently the second tallest in Dublin after the Millennium Tower in Grand Canal Dock. It is more historically significant in its earlier form, as the headquarters of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union early in the 20th century, and as that of the Irish Citizen Army (ICA). Standing on Beresford Place and Eden Quay, near the Custom House, the original Liberty Hall used to be a hotel before becoming James Connollys personal fortress in Dublin. Following the outbreak of World War I a banner reading "We serve neither King nor Kaiser but Ireland" was hung on its front wall, and within was printed the newspaper The Irish Worker.11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 25
    • The Nelson Pillar (Irish: Colún Nelson), known generally in Dublin as Nelsons Pillar or simply The Pillar, was a large granite pillar topped by a statue of Horatio, Lord Nelson, located in the centre of OConnell Street in Dublin. It was built in 1808 and destroyed by a bomb in 1966.[1] The pillar was a Doric column that rose 121 feet (36.9 m) from the ground and was topped by a 13 feet (4.0 m) tall statue in Portland stone by Cork sculptor Thomas Kirk, RHA (1781–1845), giving it a total height of 134 feet (40.8 m) – some 35 feet (10.7 m) shorter than Nelsons Column in London. The diameter of the column was 13 feet (4.0 m) at the bottom and 10 feet (3.0 m) at the top.[2] All the outer and visible parts of the Pillar were of granite, from the quarry of Golden Hill, Kilbride, County Wicklow. The interior was of black limestone. The original entrance to the pillar was underground but, G. P. Baxter designed a porch in 1894 which was added to allow direct access from the street. The adult public paid sixpence (children under 12 were half-price) to climb the 168 spiral steps to a platform which gave a birds-eye view of the city. Ken Dolan and six other students[8] from the National College of Art and Design stole the statues head on St. Patricks Day from a storage shed in Clanbrassil Street as a fund-raising prank to pay off a Student Unions debt11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 26
    • The Spire of Dublin, officially titled the Monument of Light[1] (Irish: An Túr Solais) is a large, stainless steel, pin-like monument 121.2 metres (398 ft) in height, located on the site of the former Nelsons Pillar on OConnell Street in Dublin. The spire was designed by Ian Ritchie Architects,[2] who sought an "Elegant and dynamic simplicity bridging art and technology". The contract was awarded to SIAC- Radley JV and it was manufactured by Radley Engineering of Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, and erected by SIAC Construction Ltd. The first section was installed on 18 December 2002.[3] Five additional 20m sections were added with the last one installed on 21 January 2003. The spire is an elongated cone of diameter 3 m (9.8 ft) at the base, narrowing to 15 cm (5.9 in) at the top. Construction of the worlds tallest sculpture[4] was delayed because of difficulty in obtaining planning permission and environmental regulations. It is constructed from eight hollow tubes of stainless steel and features a tuned mass damper, designed by engineers Arup, to counteract sway. The steel underwent shot peening in order to subtly reflect the light falling on it. The metal changes colours due to its reflective properties.11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 27

    • The Book of Kells (Irish: Leabhar Cheanannais) (Dublin, Trinity College Library, MS A. I. (58), sometimes known as the Book of Columba) is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created by Celtic monks ca. 800 or slightly earlier. The text of the Gospels is largely drawn from the Vulgate, although it also includes several passages drawn from the earlier versions of the Bible known as the Vetus Latina. It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination. It is also widely regarded as Irelands finest national treasure. The illustrations and ornamentation of the Book of Kells surpass that of other Insular Gospel books in extravagance and complexity. The decoration combines traditional Christian iconography with the ornate swirling motifs typical of Insular art. Figures of humans, animals and mythical beasts, together with Celtic knots and interlacing patterns in vibrant colours, enliven the manuscripts pages. Many of these minor decorative elements are imbued with Christian symbolism and so further emphasise the themes of the major illustrations.11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 29
    • The General Post Office (GPO) (Irish: Ard- Oifig an Phoist) in Dublin is the headquarters of the Irish postal service, An Post, and Dublins principal post office. Sited in the centre of OConnell Street, the citys main thoroughfare, it is one of Irelands most famous buildings, and was the last of the great Georgian public buildings erected in the capital. Besides its architectural significance and its role as the chief office of the Irish Post office, Dublin‟s G.P.O. holds a place of particular symbolic importance for Irish people for it was the headquarters of the men and women who took part in the Easter Rising of April 1916. While that rebellion ended in failure with most Irish people lamenting the death and destruction which had been caused, it was the catalyst for events that were to lead to Irish independence and the creation of a new State.11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 30

    • (1847-1912) Number 15, Marino Crescent was the birthplace in 1847 of Abraham (Bram) Stoker, the author of one of the worlds most chilling novels, "Dracula". Although, loosely based on the macabre and cruel character of Vlad Tepes or Vlad the Impaler, a 15th century prince of Wallachia in Transylvania, a region also renowned for stories of vampires and werewolves, Stoker had plenty of material to draw on from early and contemporary Irish history. The Great Famine (1845-47) and subsequent cholera outbreaks fuelled many stories of horror and of people being buried alive. In Celtic times storytellers were passed on of dreadful tales of the "undead", those who were destined to wander the earth forever seeking the blood of others. These ghouls were known to have had bad blood or droch fhola (pronounced as druc ula!)11/28/2010 Designing Dublin 2.0 - Love the City 41

He wrote several plays including his masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest.

    • BIORHYTHM: MUSIC AND THE BODY What makes us dance? Why do we sing the blues? Could there be a formula for the perfect hit? Music is a central part of the human experience, but what is the natural force that drives us to sing, strum, drum and dance? What is the scientific basis of whistling, humming and toe-tapping? Cognitive scientist Steven Pinker recently claimed that music is "auditory cheesecake", designed to tickle parts of our brain designed for more serious purposes like speech and abstract reasoning. Darwin, on the other hand, preferred to think that music and dance evolved as an integral part of human courtship rituals. George Bernard Shaw more racily described dancing as "the vertical expression of a horizontal desire".
