Getting About   The Shannon River flows through central Limerick by the old town on King's

                Island. The city centre is south of the river and revolves around O'Connell

                Street.

 The tourist office is right in the centre on Arthurs Quay , and the bus and train station is to the south of O'Connell Street.

The stadium is in the north-west corner of town, a 30-40 minute walk. There are plenty of pubs that line the way. There are two routes to the ground. One option is to take Thomond Bridge by King John's Castle and walk for just under a mile towards Hasset's Cross junction-look out for the floodlights to guide you.

                Alternatively, cross Sarsfield Bridge and stroll for about half a mile before turning into Shelbourne Road at Union Cross. When you get to Hasset's Cross, at the next set of lights go left.
