    Hi

    I'm from Limerick but have been living away in northern Ireland for near on 4 years. Reading the posts on her has made me a bit homesick.

    I miss the pubs mostly, craic up here doesn't even come close. The old nightclub in the George was also the best fun ever.

    So those of you who are still there, whats the best thing about it!!

    The locke bar on a sunny day, The new bedford row and thomas street, Walking the quay's, The short distance to beautiful places, like curragh chase, the clare glens, Kilaloe and lough gur, The majority of the people here are amazing.

    I'd say the people, most Limerick people are shockingly decent.

    The beergarden in the Curragower on a Summers evening, perfect.

    I'd forgotten about the Locke bar!!! Sitting out on a busy friday evening in late september supping a pint bliss!

    Very poetic description Mooch, but also quite accurate! :) Crossing the Shannon on a sunny day is the best. Also, standing behind the goals in the Gaelic Grounds on a sunny summer's day, up in the top tier of the terrace. The view of the pitch, stadium and surrounding area is great.

    When I used to work down on Henry Street, I used to love sending my lunch days during the summer, lying on the grass down by Poormans.
    Sun in your face, surrounded by friends, and laughing at all the spooky kids!:D
    Great way to while away an hour or two.

    My personal favorite thing about Limerick though are the people.
    They're just more open than people I've met in other places.

    The river - it's just so impressive. I love taking a stroll down to look at it and it always lifts my spirits. I don't know why more isn't made of it .
    The Peoples Park - at the moment it's covered in daffodils, cherry blossoms and magnolias. The playground is so fantastic.
    Loch Gur, the Shannon fields in Corbally, St. Mary's Cathederal and O'Connell Grill chips.

    the fact that there are so many good rugby clubs in the area I don't have to travel far if I want to see a good game..

    I miss the nightclub in the george.. Limerick could do with a new 70's or 80's night..

    UCH, the belltable, impact, LIT and the castle players.. bound to be some kind of a show or play on every couple of weeks..

    I would have said Javas only they closed the bloody place.. I haven't found a replacement yet for my evening non alco refreshments..
