Founded in 841, Dublin was originally settled by Vikings amongst a population of Celtic tribes.
In the 9th century the Danes captured Dublin and had control until 1171 when they were expelled by King Henry II of England.
Founded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin became Ireland's principal city following the Norman invasion.
The city expanded rapidly from the 17th century and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire before the Acts of Union in 1800.
Following the partition of Ireland in 1922, Dublin became the capital of the Irish Free State, later renamed Ireland. The city is listed by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network (Ga WC) as a global city, with a ranking of "Alpha-", placing it among the top thirty cities in the world.PTC, a firm focused on Internet of Things (Io T) technologies, is to create 50 new jobs in Dublin by the end of 2018.The company is to establish a new research and development (R&D) office in Dublin in an investment supported by IDA Ireland.Among the initial positions available are roles for Dev Ops engineers, cloud architects and security architects.
