Limerick City is the hub and capital of the Shannon Region and the 3rd
largest city in the Republic of Ireland. Its colourful and fascinating
history is evident everywhere and proudly maintained. Limerick is a
proud, progressive and thriving City with a charter older than that of
London; its castles, ancient walls and museums are testament to its
dramatic past. Limerick embraces its sporting nature; the spiritual
home to Munster Rugby, a very strong heritage in rowing, world renowned
golf courses, and an all embracing culture around sport makes it an
exciting place to hold ISBS 2009.
