Photographer's Note

The city of Limerick is situated alongside the river Shannon, seen in the photo, so its bridges have been of great commercial and strategic importance. They connect County Clare to County Limerick. This bridge, Thomond Bridge, for centuries the only crossing point, is probably the oldest one. It was built near a fording point, and was once the site of a failed attempt to defend the city during the Siege of Limerick. The Treaty Stone, upon which the Treaty of Limerick is said to have been signed, is situated at one end. The current stone bridge was built in 1836, replacing the earlier bridge which was also alongside King John's Castle. The bridge now forms part of the R445 (formerly N7), carrying traffic on the Northern Relief Road.
