Synopses & Reviews
Following on from the success of Pat Dargan's previous works, Exploring Georgian Dublin and Exploring Irish Castles, this new work offers an insight into a much overlooked aspect of Limerick. This guide provides an overview of Georgian Limerick, its beginnings and emergence, its Baroque planning, its open spaces, and its classically inspired architecture. The individuals responsible for the developments are introduced, together with the forces that motivated them and the ideas and influences that inspired and guided them. What emerges is a picture of Limerick that may be new to many people, visitors and locals alike.
