Acre appears in the following tongue twister:
- Something in a thirty-acre thermal thicket of thorns and thistles thumped and thundered threatening the three-D thoughts of Matthew the thug - although, theatrically, it was only the thirteen-thousand thistles and thorns through the underneath of his thigh that the thirty year old thug thought of that morning.

- Croppies Acre marking the 1798 rebellion
Croppies Acre lies in the Esplanade below the new National Museum (formerly Collins Barracks and the Royal Barracks) and between Benburb Street and Wolfe Tone Quay.
Croppies Acre was built as a memorial to Irish rebels executed during the 1798 Rebellion. Croppy was a derogatory title given to Irish rebels who cut (or cropped) their hair in the style of French Revolutionaries.
In true Irish tradition, The Croppy Boys have also been remembered through song and poetry.
