Dublin's campaign to become the European Capital of Culture in 2020 is picking up steam, thanks to a beautiful video made for the campaign.

Read by Stephen James Smith, the poem Dublin You Are talks about the city's eccentricities, its failings, its triumphs and everything in between as well as name-checking a few of our most beloved citizens.

It also showcases Dublin in all its forms, from the IFSC to Parnell St. and from Bull Island to Islandbridge.

It's a gorgeous little video and reminds you how beautiful our capital city really is. Fair play to ya, Dublin, you're only gorgeous.
