Three-DVD Collection Delves into the Heart of Dublin


Dublin DVDs: Like many European cities, Dublin, Ireland, has a long, storied history. Founded by the Vikings, the settlement came under Norman control in 1169. Two years later, Henry II of England officially claimed the town as the City of Dublin. Today, tourists can see the history in visits to well-known landmarks such as Dublin Castle, the Custom House, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. But there is much more to the city than these popular destinations. “In Dublin, there is a rich tapestry of the people’s daily lives, which may not be as obvious,” says David Smith in the beginning narration of his three-DVD collection Worth Looking Up: A Pictorial Record of a 1,000-Year-Old City. A native Irishman, Smith highlights sites “which the average tourist would pass without giving them a second glance,” but whose history gives every pocket of the city life. It’s a homespun, thoughtful compilation well worth watching if you’re planning a visit to Dublin. For more information or to purchase the DVDs, email David Smith at davidscouts@hotmail.com‬.
