Limerick's history stretches back over 1,000 years. It is famed for pigs and poetry, but only the surface of the history has been scratched. This book looks at the forgotten past such as the story of the deer that ran amok through the streets of Limerick City and the man who was sentenced to work in a bog. These are the stories that were passed down through families but never made it into print. Each letter of the alphabet leads to another tale from animals and their amazing antics to the Cranberries' 'Zombie' which brought international fame to the area.
The book will be published by the History Press on or after 14TH MAY 2021 .
