No, Dubh Linn came first, as an early ecclesiastical settlement, and Atha Cliath arose in the 9th or 10th century, when the two settlements existed side by side, before Dublin was consolidated into one city.

The original Dubh Linn (Black Pool) was where the Castle Gardens are now, while Atha Cliath (the hurdle ford) was closer to the present-day river, where the Fr. Matthew Bridge is now located.

Wiki is fairly detailed.
