Re: Re: Architectural heritage of Limerick
That’s what it looked like to me gunter until I tried lining up the maps. The old map is remarkably accurate in terms of geometry for the extent of the town at the time.
Stuff in the “planned” bit doesn’t line up as well but certain features are easily discerned like the distinctive triangle at Patrick St. It looks like the town was already built up around this area.
Anyway, it looks to me like William St. is the second cross street rather than the first which (somewhat badly) lines closer to Denmark St.
