Living in Limerick

The Irish city of Limerick, or 'Luimneach' to give it its Irish name, is one of Ireland's largest and oldest settlements. A center of history and business, Limerick is home to a top university and the birthplace of many famous Irish names, including Frank McCourt, Terry Wogan and the Republic's current President, Michael D. Higgins. Although home to less than 60,000 people, it has played an important part in Ireland's cultural life for centuries, and expats living in Limerick can find remnants of this history dotted around the city, with sites including the Castle of King John on King's Island, St. Mary's Cathedral and the Cathedral of St. John, which has the tallest spire in Ireland. The city also has a lively sports scene, with the central O'Connell Street often filling with spectators to watch major sporting events on a large screen. There is also a lively music scene here, with the city's quintessentially Irish pubs providing the perfect venues to listen to traditional and modern music.
