Limerick ~ Irishtown

This is a rear view image of a row of gabled houses from Broad Street (Limerick’s Irishtown).

Below the Pacata map of 1633 showed gables fronting Broad Street (see black arrow) in Irish Town. If this was an established tradition it was continued when the Dutch gabled houses were built in the late seventeenth or early eighteenth century (Pacata Hibernia 1633) ~ Judith Hill
