Dublin 2 is the wealthiest area in Ireland.
A new Pobal report has identified the richest and poorest communities in Ireland. It's based on things like unemployment rates, housing tenure and lone-parent ratio.
The survey also found that income levels are continuing to grow much more strongly in the capital than in other parts of the country. Dublin has fared the best over the past ten years and was less impacted by the effects of the recession.
Darndale in Dublin was classed as “very disadvantaged” and is the most deprived area in the capital. The northside area has a male unemployment rate of 38% and less than 7% of people here have a third-level education.
The areas of Merrion Square and Fitzwilliam Square fit the “very affluent” bracket with less than 6% of the male population unemployed and 82% boasting a third-level education.
