Fingal (Fine Gall in Irish, meaning "foreign tribe", i.e. Norsemen) is an administrative county of the Republic of Ireland, formed from part of the historic county of Dublin. The county was established on 1 January, 1994 with the division of County Dublin into three new administrative counties. Due to the Government’s failure to deliver on a promised media campaign that was to coincide with the county’s establishment, few people are aware of the idea of "County Fingal" and so to date it has generally been referred to as " North County Dublin". It covers the coastal area north of City of Dublin along the Irish Sea and south of the River Delvin to the River Liffey, and it is bordered by the counties of Meath, Kildare and South Dublin. ...more on Wikipedia about "Fingal"

The Southside is not an official administrative area but a colloquial term. To some, especially those from outside Dublin, the Southside of Dublin is thought to be defined as the area bounded to the north by the River Liffey, to the east by Dublin Bay and to the south and west by the M50 motorway. However, a more common and everyday use of the term, esepcially as regards the stereotypes and characteristics associated with the Southside and Southsiders, is to consider the Southside to be that area loosely bounded by the green-line LUAS and the DART. This holds true especially as regards the cliché that the Southside has areas of higher affluence than the Northside. Areas of the Southside included in this more culturally relevant definition include Mount Merrion, Foxrock, Goatstown, Cabinteely, Ballsbridge, Rathmines, Donnybrook, Dalkey, Killiney and, possibly Terenure. The territory incorporated in the wider but looser definition would include areas such as Drimnagh , Ballyfermot and Tallaght. ...more on Wikipedia about "Southside (Dublin)"
