Yesterday the bodies of four of Dublin’s original inhabitants were unearthed by archaeolgisits working in a building site in the Golden Lane, Ship Street area of the city.

But just who were these four individuals with whom the city of Dublin has recently been reacquainted? Were they full blooded Celts fluent in Gaelic, with an ability to sing the sean nos? No. Could they dance the Walls of Limerick? I don’t think so. Could the sing the national anthem? Don’t ask.

The four bodies discovered yesterday belonging to the original Dubliners were in fact Vikings! Two came from the Hebrides, two came from Scandinavia.

Ladies and gentlemen from the cold north I say thank you, and may you rest in peace.
