Limerick almost certainly dates back to at least 812 CE. However, there is also archaeological evidence of people living in and around the area many hundreds of years before.
By the 12th century, the Normans had redesigned the city, creating much of its most notable architecture such as King John’s Castle and St Mary’s Cathedral. In the early medieval era, Limerick was at the centre of the Kingdom of Thomond, eventually prospering throughout the 1500s and much of the 1600s.
In 1651, however, the city’s luck changed for the worse. Oliver Cromwell went on to besiege Limerick, thus causing significant damage, before the Williamites attacked it twice more in the 1690s.
The 18th century saw peace prevail once more, with Limerick establishing itself as one of Ireland’s major commercial ports exporting goods to Britain and America.
Around two hundred years later, in 1942, the nearby Shannon Airport opened for the first time. It was during this period that Joe Sheridan, a chef at the airport, invented Irish Coffee.
