HISTORIC WALK: Limerick Historical Society will hold its next evening walk on Wednesday August 10. The historic walk will commence at Barrington’s Hospital, George’s Quay at 7 p.m. The hospital was built in 1830 by the Barrington family of Glenstal, Murroe, at a cost of €10,000. Initially, there will be a talk on the Barringtons and the houses associated with the family. From there we will proceed down Mary Street to take in some sights along the way and we will finish with a guided tour of the North Munster Masonic Centre on Castle Street. Everybody is welcome and there is no charge.
