You are fed up of 40 different kind of green in beautiful Kerry, Clare or any other Western Irish county? No problem. Just have a day trip to the City of Limerick as a contrast. The third biggest city of the Republic of Ireland has about 100.000 inhabitants, the city centre has a chess board like architecture, similar to New York City. Surprisingly people in Limerick are almost as hectic as in NYC. If you read the brilliant novel 'Angela´s Ashes' by Frank McCourt, it might be interesting to take part in a guided tour to the streets,squares and pubs where the novel took place. The worst slums however are removed by now. Enjoy a walk at the River Shannon and take a look at the castle. Right now there is a lot under construction in Limerick which means that it is unbearable loud at many corners. So better enter one of the million pubs which you can find all over Limerick, have plenty of Guinness or Kilkenny and stay there for the rest of the day. The following day you will enjoy Green Number 41, 42, 43...if you still able to do so after 44 or 45 pints the night before.
