    Default Northside / Southside divide ?

    Just something that came up on another thread got me thinking.

    How many Citys / Towns have a divide like Dublin.

    And why ? Is it just a need to slag people that are from a different area ?

    I'm not from Dublin but it always amazes me how annoyed people can get over being called a northside Knacker, or equally a Southside snob.

    There is one here in Carlow going back to a game of football played in 1922 .: doc

    I would have most big cities have something equivalent.

    I lived in Chicago for a while, and it was slightly odder in that it had a South side, West side, and North side - but no East side!

    The North side is the posh part, while the South side is a little suspect, while the West side is downright dangerous.
