Dublin North is a large constituency with an electoral roll of over 70,000 people. Located in the north of County Dublin, the constituency is represented in Dáil Éireann (a house of the Irish Parliament).
Originally, the constituency was created by the 1980 Electoral Act. This replaced the previous constituency of North County Dublin. The Dublin North constituency includes several regions including Rush, Lusk, Skerries and Donabate. Balbriggan and Malahide are electoral areas of Fingal County Council.
Dublin is situated in the province of Leinster (on the east coast of Ireland) at the mouth of the River Liffey. Originally a Viking settlement, Dublin has been the principal city for Ireland ever since the medieval era. In modern times, Dublin one of Europe's fastest increasing populations.

Dublin has also produced more Nobel Prize for Literature winners than any other city in the world (three in total).
James Joyce produced some of his most famous works including "Dubliners" which is a anthology of short stories based around local residents of Dublin the the early 20th century. "Ulysses", arguably his most celebrated work, is also set in Dublin.
Dublin has a pulsating nightlife and was voted friendliest city in Europe. There are many pubs across the whole of the city centre and the St Stephen's Green area is home to most of the popular nightclubs. Wexford Street, Harcourt Street and Camden Street are three of the most popular areas for pubs and clubs.
The Temple Bar area (to the south of the Liffey) is a popular tourist area and has become popular for hen parties and stag nights in recent years. Some locals steer clear of this area but others embrace it and the area has become known as a cultural district with many small music venues and street performers.

Several sections of the city are devoted to shopping including Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Ilac Shopping Centre, Jervis Shopping Centre and the Grafton and Henry Streets. Many large department stores, including Debenhams, have plots in the city and the area has long been a meeting point for locals.
A new planned development, the Northern Quarter, has been given the green light and will see nearly 50 new shops, a four star hotel and 175 apartments developed in the city centre. Several new cafes are also planned for the work that is due to start work in late 2008.
