      Maybe so. The link works fine for me. Here's the long way round:

      1. Scroll to the top of this page.

      2. Click 'Forums' in the blue bar.

      3. Select 'Travel Questions & Answers'

      4. When you arrive, put 'County Limerick' in the 'Jump to a location' box under 'Travel answers' and click the search button.

      5. Select 'county Limerick, Ireland' and click. The n you'll be in the right forum and can post your question using the 'Ask' tab.

      Hope that's clear enough. :-)
