Dublin ranked 25th best city according to international survey

Goodness gracious! Dublin has been ranked the 25th best city in the world to live in. 
This is according to the results of a Worldwide Quality of Living Survey, conducted by consultants Mercer and released on April 28th 2009.
This means Dublin is better than New York, Barcelona, Tokyo, Paris and London.
OK, I see how it might be better than Tokyo or London - but Barcelona? C'mon!
Don't get me wrong. I love Dublin. It is lively, vibrant and full of interest. But so is Barcelona AND it has spectacular architecture, a great transport system, fronts onto a beach - not to mention lovely weather.
LikePlace contributors have rated Dublin City Centre at 3 out of 5. In light of Mercer's findings, is this fair

Speaking of Dublin, I should point out that we are currently inserting postal codes against all Dublin locations, e.g. Drumcondra (Dublin 3), etc. We are also merging a few places where it makes sense and generally doing a bit of tidy-up and rationalisation.

Don't worry! No ratings will be lost - just some may be shifted sideways, e.g. 'Rathmines East' will become just plain old 'Rathmines'.
