The hidden gems of Dublin will be made more accessible to visitors with the launch of 12 interpretive panels to promote greater engagement with the city's rich past.

The panels, which were launched yesterday, will be situated along The Dubline, a unique cultural and heritage walking trail which runs from Parnell Square via Trinity College to Kilmainham Gaol and Courthouse.

They were jointly developed by Dublin City Council and Fáilte Ireland to promote more of the capital's local character and to inform trail users of key historical points along the route.

"While we have a rich history and great tales to tell, we can't assume they are self-evident and we have to put them out front and centre to our visitors," said Noel John McLoughlin of Fáilte Ireland.

Also speaking at the launch, Lord Mayor of Dublin Críona Ní Dhálaigh said: "The interpretive panels complementing The Dubline will open up the story of Dublin to visitors and Dubliners alike."
