DublinTown have today launched a new brand which will focus on Dublin city’s Northside district, ‘Dublin One’.
To celebrate the launch, Dublin One has teamed up with photographer Peter Varga of Humans of Dublin to create an exhibition featuring individuals from the Dublin One area. Peter spent an entire day capturing and experiencing the lives of the people living and working in and enjoying what Dublin One has on offer. The photography exhibition of the ‘Humans of Dublin One’ is free to the public and will be housed in Dublin One, upon completion.
The district spans the streets of O’Connell Street to Capel Street and Parnell Street to the end of Liffey Street with approximately 850 businesses operating in the area.
Over 600,000 feet flock weekly to these Northside streets with its 130 cafes and restaurants. Visitors to Dublin One can discover new worlds of food every day with cuisines from over 17 different ethnicities available from African, Asian and Brazilian to Greek, Japanese, Moldovan and Vietnamese.
Well known Dubliner Louise McSharry was on hand to officially launch the new initiative at The Tram Café, Wolfe Tone Square this morning. In her first appearance since giving birth to her baby boy Sam in October, 2fm’s Louise McSharry said she was delighted to work with DublinTown as they launched ‘Dublin One’.
