If you've ancestors from Limerick City or its hinterland, Sharon Slater's Limerick in Old Photographs is a must-buy book to complement your Irish family history research.
Ireland's third most populous city has a long and vibrant history and has witnessed huge changes in the last two centuries. These changes have been captured in this collection of archive images by historian Sharon Slater, who runs the excellent Limerick's Life blog. Through the 128 pages of the book, she shows how the city has grown, recalling shops and industries, streets and buildings, societies and clubs, and a lost way of life.
Published by The History Press, Limerick in Old Photographs is already on the shelves in Limerick's bookshops, and is available for order from Amazon.
