COUNTY LIMERICK

"Limerick, a county of Ireland, province of Munster, bounded N by the Shannon which separates it from Clare, S by Cork, NE and E by Tipperary, and W by Kerry, 51 m. long and 32 broad. The surface of this county, though diversified by small hills, is not, generally speaking, mountainous, excepting on the SE, where it is bounded by the Galtees, a lofty ridge which extends into Tipperary, and on the borders of Kerry, where the land rises, and forms a grand amphitheatre of low but steep mountains, which extend in a wide area from Loghill to Drumcolloher. The land is generally fertile. The principal rivers are the Maig, Feale, Gale, and Blackwater. It sends 2 members to parliament. The climate is wet. Pop. 214,286."
[From The New London Gazetteer (1826)]
