Best Known For:

Limerick is known for dating back to at least Viking times when the first settlement was built here in 812. However, it was only in the 12th century that it started to take its current form when the Normans arrived, and buildings such as St Mary's Cathedral and King John's Castle date back to this period.

The city played a very important role during the civil wars which took place in the 17th century. It was attacked by Oliver Cromwell in 1651, and a few decades later by the Williamites.

Limerick is also the setting for one of the most popular books in recent times to be set in Ireland. 'Angela's Ashes' is a childhood memoir by Frank McCourt which was later made into a film. The descriptions of the poverty he suffered, mixed with the hilarious anecdotes, made the book into a worldwide bestseller. You can even go on a special walk of the city which will take you to the areas mentioned in the book.

Limerick also gives its name to the popular form of poetry the 'Limerick'. It is thought that an early song featured the name Limerick, and the name has stuck.
