Limerick in 50 Buildings

Availability: In stock

The city of Limerick, in the west of Ireland, has an interesting history. Established by the Vikings on the estuary of the River Shannon as it flows into the Atlantic, the city was taken over by the Normans in the twelfth century and fought over during the civil wars in the seventeenth century. The city expanded greatly in the Georgian and Victorian eras and this legacy has given Limerick a significant historical fabric of buildings from many ages. Limerick’s Gothic St Mary’s Cathedral, the Norman King John’s Castle, medieval defences, imposing Georgian public buildings, extensive Victorian religious and industrial buildings, its museums and its modern architecture all reflect a dynamic local history. Limerick in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating city through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, showing the changes that have taken place in city over the years. This book will appeal to all those who live in Limerick or who have an interest in the city.
