Baile Átha Cliath (pronounced: Baileacthulhuacliath), or in colloquial Cliath, Baile Átha, or BÁC. A suburb region right outside of Dublin City center, mainly inhabited by ethnical Celtic immigrants from the Irish speaking areas of countys Mayo, Tyrone, and Donegal.
Baile Átha Cliath is situated just south of Dublin. It is a little unclear where exactly, since the placement of the region can variate a bit from map to map, but it is always to the south, so we can conclude that it should be mainly somewhere between Clondalkin down to coastal Dún Laoghaire.
The uncertainty of placement has to do with the native celts relative poordom. They are not always fortunate enough to own a house. Many of them live in trailers and vans and move around a bit from place to place. They may also be create lose settlements like the brazilian favelas that are easily washed away by rain and earth slides. Another factor that increases the randomness in supposed settlement is a local abundance of Guinness combined with the ever incoming fogs from the Irish Sea.
The Celtic Suburbs
Baile and so on is one of many Celtic suburbs placed south of the greatest Irish cities. Other suburbs in this group are Leitir Cennian just south of Letterkenny, Corcaigh south of Cork and Cill Dara slightly south west of Killdare.
The inhabitants of this suburbs share - besides poverty - the common Celtic trait of extreme cultural stubborness. They refuse to speak English and therefore their parts of the cities cling on to those peculiar names.
It's a bit of a mystery why these suburbs always lie to the South. One possible explanation may be that the deep Catholic celts shun the protestants, which they have heard live in Northern Ireland. Hence in order to avoid those excommunicated religious renegades they tend to chose the more southern locations whenever they can, even if it is just about a couple of Irish miles. And soon they start lumping up in their own quarters celtienne.
