This old seat of the O’Briens, now the capital of Limerick county, a parliamentary borough and a thriving port, has a population of about 67,000, lies in a flat part of Munster 50 miles from the mouth of the Shannon.
Limerick, the surface of which, although in many places diversified by hills, is not, generally speaking, mountainous, excepting on the south-east, where it is bounded by the Galtees, a ridge of lofty mountains which extend into Tipperary and the borders of Kerry, where the ground gradually rises, and forms a grand amphitheatre of steep mountains, in a wide area from Loghill to Drumcolloher. Returns two members to parliament.
