Real Dubs

In this year of the GATHERING the people of Cork have decided to issue their own passport. In spite of an initial hiccup towards the end of last year they have produced a very acceptable document.

I really don't see any reason why the Dubs should be left behind in the local patriotic stakes. The document illustrated above is my contribution.

You will notice that it is only available to those real Dubs who were born between the two canals, so please don't go distributing it to others.

Mind you, given that the three main maternity hospitals are situated within the canals you'd have to be a real culchie not to be entitled to one of these.

Neither of my children would be entitled to this passport, since they were both born at home when we were living in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown (one in Ballybrack, one in Dalkey).

Even the crowd in Rathmines wouldn't be entitled to one of these.

I wouldn't worry too much though. They are not likely to catch on, particularly as Dublin has expanded so much over the last century.

I should get working on a Ballybrack passport (based on a residential qualification) which would, of course, be a much more exclusive club and one to which we could both belong.
