City Status In Ireland
Administrative city in the Republic of Ireland
Ceremonial city in the Republic of Ireland
In the island of Ireland, the term city has somewhat differing meanings in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Historically, city status in the United Kingdom, and before that in the Kingdom of Ireland, was a ceremonial designation. It carried more prestige than the alternative municipal titles "borough", "town" and "township", but gave no extra legal powers. This remains the case in Northern Ireland, which is still part of the United Kingdom. In the Republic of Ireland, "city" has an additional designation in local government.

Famous quotes containing the words ireland, city and/or status:
“Life springs from death and from the graves of patriot men and women spring living nations.... They think that they have pacified Ireland. They think that they have purchased half of us and intimidated the other half. They think that they have foreseen everything, think they have provided against everything; but the fools, the fools, the fools, they have left us our Fenian dead, and while Ireland holds these graves Ireland unfree shall never be at peace.”
—Patrick Henry Pearse (18791916)
“New York is the meeting place of the peoples, the only city where you can hardly find a typical American.”
—Djuna Barnes (18921982)
“As a work of art it has the same status as a long conversation between two not very bright drunks.”
—Clive James (b. 1939)
