    Welcome to stab city

    by sourbugger Updated Jan 13, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ireland is often rated by organisations such as the WHO as one, if not the the No1,safest places to live in Europe.

    In contrast to this Limerick has occasionaly topped the european league for murders. This is the only league that Ireland can do well in apart from indebtedness to the IMF or corrupt politians, but I digress.

    It seemed to do this in 2008 beating close competition from Glasgow. Nearly all of these murders are related to the ongoing feuds between criminals gangs conducted in some appauling deprived housing estates. It therefore remains (in the tourist areas) an extemely safe place to visit. Welcome to stab city, have a vest.

    Directions from locals!

    by iaint Written Apr 7, 2008

    We were trying to find our way from the Galway road to the racecourse. I thought it would be signposted, but no!

    First guy we asked (in a filling station) was not local! Typical...

    His boss could not have been more helpful, and drew us a detailed plan. However, we must have misunderstood something and had to ask again.

    Our 3rd local (middle aged lady who seemed sober enough) started by saying...

    "I'm not very good with my lefts and rights..." My heart sank. However, she took a deep breath, figured it all out and got it 100% right! Well done to her!

    Limerick of 2014 is a safe and fantastic city. As one of the most undersold cities in Euroland, This is a European City with a great history and a great future see http://limerickcityofculture.ie/
    With an international airport 30 minutes away connecting European (2 hours) and USA (7 hours) cities directly. A great place to see Ireland and skip across to the UK and Europe. See you there. "The place to be"
