South Dublin is a county in Ireland, within the province of Leinster, and the Dublin Region, the successor to County Dublin, from which its name derives. South Dublin County Council is the local authority for the county. The county contains both dense suburbs of Dublin and stretches of unpopulated mountain. In 2011 it had a population of 278,749, making it the third most populous county in the state.
South Dublin has an area of 222.74 square kilometres. It is bounded by Dublin City, the River Liffey, Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, County Kildare and its hills adjoin the mountains of County Wicklow to the south. The county town is Tallaght. Other important centres of population are Lucan and Clondalkin. Much of the county is heavily urbanised but small rural settlements exist in the southern and western parts. South Dublin had a population of 278,749 according to the 2016 census.
In Ireland, the usage of the word county nearly always comes before rather than after the county name; thus "County Clare" in Ireland as opposed to "Clare County" in Michigan, USA. In the case of those counties created after 1994, they often drop the word county entirely, or use it after the name; thus for example internet search engines show many more uses of "South Dublin" than of either "County South Dublin" or "South Dublin County". There appears to be no official guidance in the matter, as

It is one of four councils in the Dublin Region. The county is divided into five local electoral areas for the purpose of elections: Clondalkin, Lucan, Rathfarnham, Tallaght Central, and Tallaght South. Parts of four ...

Dublin supporters are commonly known as The Dubs, and in the 1970s as Heffo's army. While songs are still popular with the Dublin fans they tend to be Dublin-centric, such as "Molly Malone" and "Dublin in the Rare Old Times", or focus on the team itself, singing "Come on You Boys in Blue". The Hill 16 end in Croke Park is an area for which many Dubs hold a special affection and it is not uncommon to see the Hill filled entirely with Dubs. Dublin supporters have been known to chant "Hill 16 is Du
Fingal is the name given to that part of present-day North County Dublin bounded by the Tolka River to the south and the Delvin River to the north. Fingal is considerably older than Dublin City, which was established by the Norsemen c. 900 AD around the 'dubh linn' or black pool.

At the northern side of the village, the Delvin River marks the boundary with County Meath. Naul is also a civil parish in the historic barony of Balrothery West.
