    I love the buzz around Limerick on the weekend of a Heineken Cup home game. I always go out of my way to socialise with supporters who have travelled over from Britain or France, and try to be as friendly and as helpful as I can in welcoming them to the city.

    This seems to be a bit of a bi-monthly exercise.

    Traffic. Seriously less than other major urban areas and will be less when the tunnel opens. :D

    Walking around the city when the sun is shining. A little bit of sunshine makes the city fantastic, especially just after dawn when the river can be as still as glass.

    The walk around the river from the Treaty Stone along Clancy Strand, O'Callaghan Strand, the quays, past St. Mary's Cathedral and over Thomond Bridge.

    The river walk out past Barrington's Pier.

    The People's Park and Shlebourne Park

    The Hunt Museum and King John's Castle

    Plassey

    The close proximity to the West Coast, Kerry, the Burren, Clare Glens, Cratloe Woods, Curraghchase, Lough Gur, Bunratty Castle and Shannon airport.

    The market on a Saturday morning

    Thomond Park and rugby days

    The Guinness in Rashers.

    The sheer amount of beauties walking around in very little during warm weather.

    The breakfast rolls in centra in Raheen.

    The walk to Thomond from Jurys on a match day.

    Thomond Park hotdogs.

    The silence in Thomond Park just before a penalty :)

    The atmosphere in town when there's a big event :)

    The fact I can get off the bus around the corner from my house

    UL for defo.

    How a session can begin as if from nowhere in any pub in town.

    Wokking.

    Chicken Hut Superchip
    HEC Match Days
    The way the whole city unites when there's a huge match on (big screens in city centre, and no trouble)
    The view of the city coming in over shannon bridge.
    The view down river on a sunny day.
    The many fine drinking establishments.

    The view of the city coming in over shannon bridge.

    Having visited alot of european cites...that view on a summers night with a clam river is as breath taking as anything in europe....

    The swans down by St. Michael's Boat club or over in front of Clohessy's pub.

    The great feeling of stepping off the train onto the platform at Colbert station after a tiring trip down from Dublin.

    Lying out in the People's Park grass on a hot day.

    The flags on the bridges and O'Connell St. changing according to upcoming events and matches.

    The elegance of the Georgian buildings in the Newtown Pery.

    Never have to walk too far no matter what you are looking to buy in town.

    The place is soaked in history and you can see the story of the island of Ireland around you physically in the buildings stretching from St. Mary's Cathedral all the way up to the Riverpoint.

    Good to see Batt O'Connor playing in the clip. I met him in Flannerys, Catherine Street a couple of months ago. A nice man to talk to.
