Dublin city lies within the borders of counties Delaware, Franklin and Union in the state of Ohio. The city was named after the Irish city Dublin. The earliest settlers here were John Sells and his partner John Shields, the Irishman responsible for naming the American city after the city in Ireland. The city still has its Irish traditions that makes it an interesting place to visit.
1. Enjoy an Irish parade. St. Patrick's Day parade, a traditional Irish Festival, is held annually on the 17th of March. If one happens to be in Dublin, the parade and the festivities are worth checking out.
2. Visit a concrete field of corn. Imagine 109 human-sized ears of corn in a field. This rather bizarre field was designed and constructed by Sam Frantz, who was a pioneer in hybrid corn experiments. When he stopped farming, he put up these concrete ears of corn as a symbol.
3. Experience an Irish-themed evening. There are a number of traditional Irish pubs in downtown Dublin where one can spend an interesting evening. The friendly atmosphere in these pubs is very inviting.
4. Attend an Irish festival. The Dublin Irish Festival is held every year in August. What started as a small event held on a tennis court has now become very popular, attracting over 100,000 people. Join some Irish festivities and witness the dance competitions!
5. Watch top golfers compete. The Memorial Tournament is a PGA Golf tournament that is held every year. Golf aficionados will enjoy watching top golfers in action.
The Memorial Tournament is one of the most famous golfing championships in the state. It is held every year, between May and June, in Dublin.
