County Limerick, Ireland, through the eyes of sixty-four visitors.
For centuries visitors have written about their experiences in Limerick. This anthology brings together the best of these first-hand accounts --sixty-four writers spanning five centuries. There's a Jacobite soldier at the Siege of Limerick, Catherine McAuley setting up a Convent of Mercy, Eamon De Valera seeing Ireland for the first time. Along with Brendan Behan, Heinrich Boll, Charles Dickens and Harold Pinter, they take us on a tour of every corner of the county. Their accounts,vividly brought to life with old maps, photographs and art, are a valuable archive of Limerick's history.
