The city boundaries of Dublin and Cork are also quite small.
Is it difficult for a borough's territory to be redefined. Apparently Cork City & County Council's are at loggerheads due to the redfining of the city's boundary. Surely this is even more difficult for Limerick City in that some of the areas are actually in county clare.
Anywho for what it's worth... the cso issued the following figures from the most recent census (2002):
Total Population (including Suburbs or Environs)
These figures were for the greater suburban area and included in the case of Limerick those towns in County Clare but deemed to be suburbs of Limerick (Quinnspool, Athlunkard, Fairyhill, etc).
Time to get back to Shannonside
