The story behind the image
Our three-week trip across Ireland also brought us to Limerick, a vibrant city in the west, situated directly at the River Shannon. It is also home to King John’s Castle, which has been erected in the 13th century and has been restored and turned into a living museum. When we visited the place, there where people at the inner courtyard who demonstrated and explained daily life in the medieval period. Inside the castle, there were documentaries as well as a exhibition. It should definitely be a sidetrip on your route. Like any good point of interest, the castle has its own homepage.
My photo shows the view along River Shannon, taken from the castle’s north western watchtower. Comparing the view with recent images it turns out that the area has not changed, except for some minor changes. This is quite satisfying for me as 24 years is quite a long time, and ‘almost no change’ means ‘steadiness’ to me. Which is good in my view.
