Explorers first mentioned the Dublin area in 1772. Father Juan Crespi included it in his writings
during an expedition led by Pedro Fages, who was searching for a land route to Drake's Bay
from San Jose. He wrote that the valley was a good place for a mission with good land,
plenty of water and firewood for local Indians. Dublin's Irish roots date back to 1852, when Michael Murray and Jeremiah
Fallon came to town from Ireland and staked a homestead on 1,000 acres.
The city, which uses a clover leaf as its symbol and is known for its annual St. Patrick's Day festivals, has a 53,000 square foot civic center and police station complete with waterfalls and sculptures.
A commitment to academic excellence has led several of the Dublin schools to be awarded the California Distinguished School Award. The district scores are above national and statewide averages on various standardized
tests. Currently the city of Dublin is planning to restore the downtown area while construction is in the completion stages of a large retail center in East Dublin. This center includes popular restaurants and the only IMAX Theater in the East Bay.
