Limerick is the third largest city in the Republic of Ireland, and the principal city of County Limerick and Ireland's Mid-West Region. Population wise, it is the fifth largest city in all of Ireland. When taking the extra-municipal suburbs into account, Limerick is the third largest conurbation in the Republic of Ireland, with an urban population of 90,757. Limerick is the second-largest city in the province of Munster, an area which constitutes the midwest and southwest of Ireland. The city is situated on several curves and islands of the River Shannon, which spreads into an estuary shortly after Limerick. Road infrastructure features four main crossing points near the city centre (an additional river tunnel to the west of the three bridges opened in July 2010). Limerick is one of the constituent cities of the Cork-Limerick-Galway corridor, which has a population of 1 million.

Irelands third City, capital of the mid-west region. Famous for its sporting traditions and night life. The city has a population of 100,000 and although known for crime has actually one of the lowest crime rates in the country. The city is a major tourist attraction from Kings Island right through to the Georgian District.

Nickname: Stab City, given to it by Dubliners.

County in Ireland. Has an extremely bad reputation because of crime rates. You'd have to be 8 ft tall and 22stone armed with knives and guns to walk around the Southill area after 9.00pm.
Don't leave your car outside your back at ANY hour in the Southill area, as it will surely be stolen.

But is Limerick the worst place to live in Ireland? I DON'T think so.

Why? Because, besides the MANY, many SCUM that live there it's also filled with friendly, up for a laugh people, who could drink you under the table and bring you to the best house party ever. End of!

A verse form, often humorous and generally off-color or obscene, as:

"Then up spoke the Bey of Algiers,
And said to his harem, 'My dears,
'Tho' you may think it odd of me,
I've given up sodomy.
Tonight there'll be fucking! (Loud cheers).
They were just a bunch of drunken Oxford dons, spouting limericks.

A poem of Irish fame that is usually humorous and often nasty. It's five lines are based on beats of 4/4/2/2/4...like a marching drummer.
The O.C. Limerick

There once was a man from Orange County,
Who humped every girl like a Mountie,
Two more girls in his shack,
As they jumped in his sack,
Now he's known as the Duke of Orange County!

A beautiful lady-like city in Ireland's midwest. The last bridging point on the river (longest in Ireland and Britain) Shannon before it enters the sea. Scientists were recently surprised to discover that the river is composed of tears of the citizens who are constantly overcome with joy at the sight of the beautiful architecture on sunny days when crossing one the many bridges. Sadly some residents have to wait for periods in the arms of waters that are distant from Limerick City.

City in the Southwest of Ireland.

Has got the nickname "stab city" because a lot of parts are dangerous. "Very dangerous".

This is mainly because of a gangwar between the Ryans and the Keanes.
Stay away of O'Malley park and the Southill area whilst in Limerick!

Not only are the ordinary gangs active in Limerick, The Continuety IRA have storehouses for thier AK-47's, in Luimmineach.

Welcome to the real world; Welcome to limerick
