Limerick’s rich history means that its nickname stretches right back to the 1691 Treaty of Limerick, in which Ireland’s Williamite War came to an end, along with the Siege of Limerick. In fact, the very block of limestone upon which the treaty was reportedly signed remains in Limerick city today, displayed on a pedestal with pride. Limerick has much more to offer its lucky visitors: King John’s Castle, Lough Gur, and the Limerick City Gallery of Art all offer a warm welcome.
Castle Matrix, Rathkeale, Co. Limerick, Ireland. The castle is said to be haunted by a former Earl of Desmond who apparently walks under Lough Gur, emerging on the back of a black horse every seven years to visit his former home. Another former earl, James, is also said to haunt the castle - he was murdered by his servants. Source: - www.paranormaldatabase.com/ireland/limerick.php
