Photographer's Note

There Was A Photographer in Limerick

A picture from the fourth largest city in Ireland, Limerick (Irish: Luimneach), located in and capital of the county of the same name. We had a brief stop-over here at the end of the afternoon on our way further south. Limerick has got about 95,000 inhabitants and is lies on the River Shannon, close to the Shannon Estuary.

Seen here is a part of the oldest area in Limerick, King’s Island, whose most important building is King John’s Castle. This photo was taken from Thomond Bridge and shows some houses along Verdant Place with St Munchin’s Church from 1825 in the background.

The name limerick is also used for a form of verse, which contains five lines, is often humorous, and has a strict AABBA rhyme scheme. The first line traditionally introduces a person from a certain place: There was a [person] from [place] , hence the title of this photo. This type of poetry is quite popular with both adults and children in the Netherlands.
