Dublin is a city in Franklin, Delaware, and Union counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. The population was 31,392 at the 2000 census. In 2008, the population was estimated to be 38,536[3], and Dublin continues to be one of the fastest-growing suburbs of Columbus. Approximately 57,000 people live within the Dublin school district.[citation needed]

Each year in late May or early June, the city hosts the Memorial Tournament, a stop on golf's PGA Tour. Consequently, a large number of golf aficionados choose to make Dublin their home. There are also several other golf courses in Dublin. The Riviera Golf Club is home to the American-Italian Golf Association. Tartan Fields Golf Club, which hosted the LPGA's Wendy's Championship for Children from 2002 through 2006, is also in Dublin. Dublin also has a public golf course financed by the city, as well as the Nicklaus-designed Country Club at Muirfield.

Other annual events include the 4th of July music event, a St. Patrick's Day parade, and the Dublin Irish Festival, which is one of America's largest Irish festivals.



Although its earliest settlements date back to 1802, the village that came to be known as Dublin didn't begin to take shape until the arrival of the Sells family of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Brothers Peter and Benjamin Sells purchased 400 acres (1.6 kmĀ²) of land on the west banks of the Scioto River as a gift for their brother John. In 1808, John Sells brought his family to the region, and by 1810 he had begun to survey lots for the new village with his partner, an Irish gentleman named John Shields. According to historians, Shields is responsible for naming the town after his birthplace of Dublin, Ireland.
