It's all about Munster

Keeping the Rugby in mind (as this saturday Ireland battle England in the 6 nations, to keep their dream of Grand Slam alive ), it's all about Munster and pride.

It's all about rugby, in this town. Limerick has a long tradition of playing rugby, and the city with its successful Munster team, provides numerous players to the national team.

Note: Today France is playing Wales in the 6th Nations... Allez les bleus !!!!

The future tunnel

As i was on the river, the other day, i pass the construction site of the Limerick Tunnel.

The Limerick Tunnel, is designed to bypass the city center and connect the Dublin Road to Ennis Road, relieving the road congestion off the actual three bridges.
The picture show the section 3.
