Established as a town in 988 A.D. Norman Vikings were the first to set foot on the territory known today as Dublin, Ireland. Evidence of their presence was discovered at Wood Quay in the City Centre. In the 9th century the Danes captured the city but Irish citizens struggled for control until the Angle-Normans, led by Henry II of England wrested it from the Danes in 1171.
Dublin was a small medieval town until the 17th century after the English Civil Wars when it was taken over by Oliver Cromwell. With Protestant refugees from European making their way to Dublin, a rapid growth took over the city and commerce boomed. In the century that followed Dublin gained renown as the second city of the British Empire.
During prosperity a new parliament building was constructed (now the Bank of Ireland) and improvements to Trinity College was finished in 1759. After the rebellion of the United Irishmen of 1789 the aristocracy returned to London and Dublin suffered severe economic hardship and victims of the Great Famine flooded into Dublin. Guerrilla fighting ran rampant through the city's streets.
Two factions; the Irish Citizen Army and the Irish Republican Brotherhood fought to gain power in Dublin in the 1900's. The area around the main post office was destroyed as well as other buildings within the city center. Rebel fighting ran rampant through Dublin and in May of 1921, the IRA burned the Custom House. Despite the Angle-Irish Treaty the destruction continued with the burning of the Four Courts and several structures on O'Connell Street.
From the early 1920' to the late 1960s Dublin remained a historic but impoverished city but after a long era of peace, began trading with Britain and joined the Common Market in 1973 when the city's economy began to grow consistently. In 1988 Dublin celebrated its Millennium and was named the European Capital of Culture in 1991.
