Jokes about limerick
There are many, many jokes about limerick as the city has a reputation for being the crime capital of Ireland, and is invariably referred to as 'stab city'.
Most jokes are the usual recycled rubbish that were orginally coined to have a go at blacks/ jews/ women etc etc...
I will however leave you a couple that at least don't fall into that genre.
Q: why does the river run through limerick?
A: because if it walked it would get mugged.
Little boy and his mother from Limerick are in a taxi in Dublin. In the course of the conversation the taxi driver refers to 'stab city'. The little boy whispers to his mother "if he said that back at home they would shoot him".

Irish-Americans,don't make the mistake of believing we are the same culture because of a shared language. The citizens of Ireland are a fine, friendly people, justifiably proud of their unique heritage! As an Irish American, I relished the opportunity to explore the land of my ancestors, and felt a connectedness that is hard to explain.
English is NOT the native tongue though it is the most common language. In the Gaeltecht areas you can hear Irish spoken, and see road signs in the native language.
Take the time to get to know a few Irishmen...a taxi driver in Belfast, a walking guide in Clare, or a fishing ghilly on any river or lake. The PEOPLE of a country are the unique and more interesting part of travel. In Ireland you'll find the friendly, courteous, helpful souls that make THIS land enchanting!

Furthermore there's a cardio fitness centre, a 4 court sports hall, a 225 metre 3 lane suspended jogging track as well as a 60m, 6 lane indoor sprint track. Outdoor facilities include football/rugby pitches, tennis courts, 400m athletic track and a floodlight Astro Turf pitch.
On saturday mornings people from countryside come to the town and sell their products. You can get vegetables, fruits, handycrafts etc. The atmosphere here is like you`ve gone back in time. It´s great. People are fantastic. When I was here for the first times I didn´t understand a word the farmers were saying to me. they´ve got a bit of a accent there you see... Again; talk to the people (even if you didn´t understand a word -it´s worth it) and enjoy the atmosphere!
