Division.

In response to Flotsam’s insightful and very well thought out bit on the difference between the North side and the South side, I would like to say…

Well done. Flotsam, you have captured it quite eloquently.

But I will also like to say, even after all that has been said and done, wouldn’t you feel that the divide is closing up?! It might be hard to see it (if for example, you leave in D4 and D9)…but D2 and D1, D8 and D1? It’s looking more and more integrated, I shall say….

Just a thought. Anyone out there with their thoughts?

(p.s. Flotsam, ever thought of writing FOR metroblogs?)

All in all, at the end of the day, I will like to see a more “cohesive” city…but then again, maybe that’s all part of fun and thrill of living in Dublin City. Gotta love the diversity!! :)

    The divide is not as clear as most Dubs like to make out. Traditionally, there is the geographical divide and this is what most outsiders think of when natives speak of Northsiders and Southsiders, but, to natives, it is a little more subtle than this. Someone who is refered to as a Northsider doesn’t necessarily come from or live in that area, it can mean he/she simply displays characteristics and attitude which are associated with the Northside. Whether it is meant in a complimentary, disparaging or insulting way depends on the people involved [and the same applies to Southsiders].

    [ps Lilijana, I’ll think about your suggestion]
