Dublin is a city in Erath CountyTexasUnited States. The population was 3,754 at the 2000 census.

The town is the home of the world's oldest Dr Pepper bottling plant (see Dublin Dr Pepper). The plant, still in operation, was for many years the only US source for Dr Pepper made with real cane sugar (from Texas-based Imperial Sugar), instead of less expensive high fructose corn syrup. Contractual requirements previously limited the plant's distribution range to a 40-mile radius of Dublin, an area encompassing StephenvilleTolarComanche and Hico. However, this restriction was later[ambiguous] lifted, and now the "original" formula is available throughout most of Texas and over the Internet.

Dublin was also the boyhood home of legendary golfer Ben Hogan, who was born on August 13, 1912, at the hospital in nearbyStephenville. Hogan lived in Dublin until 1921, when he and his family relocated to Fort Worth.

American jurist and 1924 Texas Republican gubernatorial nominee George C. Butte married in Dublin, resided there for several years, and is interred at Live Oak Cemetery there.


DUBLIN 21 #6 Eastland 58

Dublin would play its best football since the bye week and it was against high powered Eastland. Dublin would take the opening kickoff to the Eastland 35 yard line and a couple plays later Holleman would find Dirk DeVries from 6 yards out. 

Eastland would make its move though and lead the Lions 16-7 and that would be until Brady Holleman would take it to the house on a 45 yard run. The Mavs would again make a move and lead the Lions in to halftime with the score 23-14. Mavs would score on its first possession of the half but the Lions would answer again. Holleman would hit DeVries up the right sideline to make the score 30-21. That would be the last time Dublin would score. The Mavs went on to win and add 21 4th quarter points.
