Around Limerick City
Limerick, the fourth largest city in Ireland. Its strategic position on the River Shannon makes it an important port, and Shannon Airport is 15 miles (24 km) away (in County Clare). The first evidence of settlement in Limerick is found on Kings Island and dates back to the Vikings of the 9th century. It was the only river crossing then, and served as a base for raiding local monasteries and Celtic settlements.
