Co. LIMERICK .... images
Much of Limerick is low and undulating particularly the eastern portion, which forms part of the rich plain known as the Golden Vale, There are, however, considerable elevations towards the west, south and north-east fringes of the county, and in the south -east the Galtee Mountains reach into Limerick from County Tipperary. Limerick City, standing where the River Shannon becomes tidal, is one of the best built and most progressive of Irish towns. An historic place with many interesting features, it is also an important port and industrial centre. The county in general is a place of quiet beauty and rural charm. It offers good sport to the angler and golfer, and contains sone of the finest hunting country in Ireland. The discriminating traveller also will find much to interest him in touring this pleasant region.
