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.

THE RICHARD RUSSELL FOUNTAIN

THE RICHARD RUSSELL FOUNTAIN IN THE PEOPLES' PARK IN LIMERICK

I have photographed three Victorian era fountains - One in Belfast, One In Limerick and one in Dun Laoghaire (which does appear to be much more ornate). There is also a possibility that the 1929 religious shrine at the junction of Reginald Street and Gray Street in Dublin started out as a similar structure.

The Richard Russell fountain, which had been overseas for many months undergoing restoration, was returned to the People's Park in November 2009.
