Limerick Off The Beaten Path: 21 reviews and 15 photos


On the main O'connell street of the city, look out for a rather fine bronze statue outside the AIB bank (unless the bank is bankrupt and has disappeared by the time you read this). It features the two sporting obsessions of the county...hurling and rugby. As these two codes used to be at loggerheads with each other so that the twain should never meet...it was perhaps a little daring of the artist Robin Buick to put them together on the same pedestal.

Limerick are often there or thereabouts when it comes to the finals of the two GAA games, huring and gaelic footbal in the autumn. When it comes to rugby the Munster teams has had great success in recent years including a win over the Australians in 2010 !
