Young and vibrant, Dublin is now an international city

DUBLIN (WWLP) – A new direct flight from Bradley International Airport to Dublin, Ireland is granting more opportunities to travelers and business.

Dublin has become a dynamic international city, but one that still holds on to tradition. Companies such as Amazon, eBay, and Facebook have put up skyscrapers in the downtown area, which are intertwined with classic architecture.

Coming with those multinational corporations are a younger generation of workers, bringing new money, which has forced some older residents outside the city limits. While the economy is improving here in the central city, people are hoping the prosperity spreads outside as well.

“The reason I moved her actually is because I received a job offer from a large technical company, and then I decided to take this opportunity, because it’s once-in-a-lifetime. And then, actually I moved here back in May, and ever since, I’ve been enjoying the city, though the weather isn’t really the best. But all other things make up for it, actually, so I’m pretty happy, actually,” Ozgur Cnibuya of Dublin said.

Young, new, and vibrant in an old city makes for a lot of people, a lot of traffic, a lot of noise, and a lot of places to see. Over the next few days, 22News reporter David McKay will go for a walk down some of the streets that people take in Dublin every day, so you can get a first-hand look.
