Dublin County Councils

Although Dublin is considered a county in itself in terms of sport and culture, it contains several individual county councils. This is due to Dublin's large population density, and they include Dún Laoghaire, Dublin City Council, Fingal and South Dublin. All the other counties in Leinster contain their own county councils individual to their own county.

Cities

The only official city in Leinster is Dublin, the capital of Ireland. However, the Greater Dublin Area has a total population of 1,661,185 with some of its larger urban areas comprising the towns of Tallaght and its environs, Blanchardstown, Clondalkin and Lucan. The city of Kilkenny and its environs also has a sizeable population, but is not usually included as a city, despite holding that title for the past 400 years.[2]
