Re: bus/taxi

Timetable for bus from Shannon to Limerick on here:

There are taxis at the airport (around 15 miles from Limerick) but they will obviously be more expensive than the bus.

Limerick city accent

by orlikins

The Limerick City accent is very high and sing-songy and everybody will call you 'luv'. :)Dont call them luv back unless you can do the accent, it'll sound a bit silly.

The accent is slightly nasal (or 'naayzil') and the intonation lilts, but not to the same extent as it would in Kerry or Cork and the vowels are heavily stressed.

It's not incomprehensible but it's good to be aware of it.Personally, I don't talk like that any more ;-)

Limerick City people are generally straightforward and dont take any crap. We know Limerick is a kip, but it's _our_ kip :)

Limerick Rugby

by orlikins

Half the time, it seems like the Irish rugby league is nothing but a Limerick derby! You may have heard of Garryowen, Young Munster, Shannon and Old Crescent who are the big names of Irish rugby and have also played in Europe too. Thomond Park is the main rugby pitch in Limerick.

Rugby has a kind of middle-class, slightly elitist image in Ireland, but in Limerick city, that was never the case. County Limerick would be well into their Gaelic football & hurling and soccer though.

One of the Barringtons (this family owned Barringtons hospital in the city) came back from Trinity college Dublin is credited with bringing this game down from Dublin and setting up the first rugby club in Rathkeale in the 1850s. The Garryowen & Shannon rugby clubs were founded in 1884, Young Munster 1895 and Old Crescent in 1947.

In the late 1940s the National side had some excellent Limerick players on board. They toured Down Under and did really well. Players like Tom Clifford (Young Munster) became household names and rugby's popularity in Limerick just grew from there.

Rugby really brought people together and created an excellent community spirit in the city when the Ireland rugby league was set up. All but 2 of Limerick city's boy schools offer rugby as an extra-curricular activity.

No Limerick rugby supporter would dream of attending a game without singing 'There is an Isle' - or try to! Though no place names are actually referred to in the song, it is widely adopted as a 'Limerick' song, just like 'Limerick, you're a lady' [which I think is utter drivel].

You think Manchester and soccer, you also think Limerick and rugby.

St John's Cathedral

by irishjon25

St John's Cathedral

The Cathedral of St John the Baptist is the present day Cathedral in Limerick City. The link between St John the Baptist and the area around the Cathedral is long standing. According to Begley, the Knights Templars had a house in the area in the 12th century that was dedicated to John the Baptist.

After the Synod of Rathbrassil in 1111, St Mary's church became the first cathedral church of the Diocese of Limerick. According to local tradition, Donal O'Brien, the King of Thomond, donated his palace as the new site for a Cathedral in the latter half of the twelfth century. As the Synod of Rathbrassil occurred in the first half of the twelfth century, this tradition is certainly false. Brian Hodkinson suggests that during Donal's reign, the church moved to a new site on land provided by Donal. However, following the Reformation, this Cathedral became the property of the Church of Ireland.

A very nice church steeped in history, the steeple can be seen for many miles around.

Cratloe woods

by orlikins

Marking the Limerick / Clare border are the Cratloe woods. it used to be an important lookout point when Limerick was ruled by the earls of Thomond (before the Brits took a fancy to Ireland ;p )
At the top of the Cratloe hills, Limerick city & the Shannon estaury is spread out before you. You should be able to see Bunratty castle as well. Watch this space for a photo or 2
