A map of Dublin from 1686
<p>via Come Here To Me -- 'The whole population of the county at the time was under 60,000. Ringsend, Merrion, Monkstown, Bullock and Dalkey on the Southside and Ballybough, Clontarf, Sutton and Hoath/Howth on the Northside are marked. Taken from the book Dublin: through space and time (2001).'</p><p>
Massive tracts of land were reclaimed since then, clearly -- the North bay comes all the way in to Ballybough!</p>
