* COUNTY: Limerick County is located in the province of Munster, in the mid-west of Ireland, with counties Clare to the north, Cork to the south, Kerry to the west and Tipperary to the east.
* RUGBY: Limerick is the home of Munster Rugby. The Munster team won the European Heineken Cup twice recently and they were the only club team to beat the 'All-Blacks' on their European tour in 1978. Recently there was a 30-year anniversary re-run of this match for the opening of the new Munster Stadium (Thomond) in Limerick, where the All-Blacks were lucky to beat Munster by 2 points.
* ANGELA'S ASHES: Frank McCourt's book/film ‘Angela's Ashes’, about living conditions in Limerick city in the 1930s and 40s is well known and has caused much controversy and debate, as to whether it reflects a true account of his life in the city or not.
* POETRY: a 'limerick' is a five-line poem with a strict form, originally made popular by Edward Lear. Limericks are witty or humorous but are often obscene. The origin of the name ‘limerick’ for this type of poem is obscure but its usage was first documented in England in 1898. It is generally taken to be a reference to County Limerick (particularly the Maigue Poets), and may derive from an earlier form of nonsense verse which traditionally included a refrain that ended "Come all the way up to Limerick?". Example:
There was an Old Man of Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket
His daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man ...
And, as for the bucket, Nantucket
