Video: King John’s Castle Limerick


So behind me is King John’s castle and its a major asset to Limerick city because its 800 years of history in these walls.

It marks the site where the Vikings first came and they used this area to pillage the whole countryside They went to all the religious settlements and they wreaked havoc in this area And then they were overtaken by the other Vikings, the Dublin Vikings and then eventually the Normans came along around the 12th century and in 1200 the lord of limerick, his name was John, he decided to build this castle and that’s where it got its name

We’re going to explore what happened then and after that when we go inside this beautiful piece of history
