MUNICIPAL CORPORATION BOUNDARIES (Ireland).
REPORT upon the Proposed Municipal Boundary and
Division into Wards of the City of Dublin.
THE City of Dublin is a County of itself; its Limits have continued without Municipal material alteration for several centuries.
The Limits of the County of the City extend on the East as far as the Black Rock, a Village distant about five statute miles from the Castle; on the SouthÂ¬ west and North direction they run very irregularly, varying from half a mile to two miles and a half; on the North-east they extend to Ballybough Bridge.
The Limits embrace such portions of the Shore as are included within the utmost distance to which a man on horseback can at low water throw a dart into the Sea.
The Limits of the County of the City differ very considerably from those of the modern City.
The present Lines of Boundary between the City and the County of Dublin, as perambulated, are very irregular and inconvenient; in some places passing through private dwelling-houses and gardens, and generally more or less unequally intersecting the public Streets.
There have been controversies from a very early period between the Officers of the Corporation and Seneschals of the several manorial jurisdictions which exist in part within the City Limits, as to their respective Boundaries and powers.
The following Parishes and Parts of Parishes are comprised within the Limits of the County of the City:â€”viz.
James (Part of.)
