Well here I am doing a “plug” for Limerick. Had to get one in sometime ha ha !!

It’s a Anglo Norman castle built in the early thirteenth century in the reign of the English monarch ” King John ” who apparently never visited. It played a important part in the history of Limerick and it’s various sieges and the Treaty of Limerick.

The ” Treaty Stone ” is visible from the battlements and shows that even a treaty carved in stone can be broken.

Anyway it is well worth a visit.
