I ACTUALLY LIKE LIMERICK CITY

Limerick is a city in county Limerick, Ireland. It is located in the Mid-West Region and is also part of the province of Munster. Limerick City and County Council is the local authority for the city. The city lies on the River Shannon, with the historic core of the city located on King's Island, which is bounded by the Shannon and the Abbey River. Limerick is also located at the head of the Shannon Estuary where the river widens before it flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Limerick is the third most populous city in the state, and the fourth most populous city on the island of Ireland.

MOUNT ST. ALPHONSUS - MISSION CROSS

MISSION CROSS AT MOUNT ST. ALPHONSUS

Because I read the brass plaque attached to the cross I can confirm that it is "The Mission Cross"

HERE IS WAS I SAID WHEN I FIRST PHOTOGRAPHED THIS IN 2017

Religion is one thing that is not lacking in Limerick.

Initially I believed that this was the Mission cross that was donated by the Drapers Assistants. But I am now almost certain that it is not the mission cross as it is supposed to be at the right of the main entrance … “On the right of the door of the church, there is a Mission Cross donated by the Drapers Assistants in memory of the Mission to Men. This mission was preached in the church in January 1868. Above the door of the church there is a statue of Our Lord surrounded by angels. On the gable wall of the monastery, there is a statue of St Patrick, which was sculpted by Patrick Pearse's father.”

At this stage all that I can say is this is a photograph of a large crucifix on the grounds of the Redemptorist Church in Limerick.
