Information about County Limerick

County Limerick is in the Republic of Ireland with Limerick as the county seat, where the Shannon river widens before running into the Atlantic. The region is an agricultural plain lying south of the Shannon estuary. The Golden Vale in the eastern part of the county and the Shannon bank are especially fertile.

Limerick is a medieval city, standing where the River Shannon becomes tidal. As an historic place it has many interesting features as well as being an important port and industrial centre.

The name Limerick derives from the Irish ' Luimneach'. County Limerick is home to several ancient sites and monuments including King John's Castle in the City of Limerick and the round towers at Ardpatrick and Dysert. Lough Gur is one of the most important archaeological sites in Ireland with an excellent interpretative centre revealing Neolithic life of some 5,000 years ago. After the Anglo-Norman invasion and the organization of Limerick as a shire in1200, the district was controlled for many centuries by the Earls of Desmond.

Many 12th century churches can be found throughout Limerick and The Hunt Museum houses a fine collection of Irish and European religious art. The Hunt Museum housed in the Old Customs House is one of the finest collections of antiquities in Europe. The Augustinian Friary has a true medieval feel, the 13th-century Trinitarian Abbey is the only home of the order in Ireland, both are still in use, the first by the Church of Ireland, the latter by the Catholic Church.

Visitors to County Limerick an enjoy some of Ireland's most scenic countryside and the charming villages of Adare and Croom. Golf, greyhound racing, fishing and water sports on the River Shannon is readily available. Limerick has a strong sporting history with a great love of the games of rugby, hurling, Gaelic football, soccer and the sport of horse racing.
