Limerick Castle Street ~ Dutch-Gables

The 1842 drawing of the new Thomond Bridge and King Johns Castle (W.F. Wakeman NLI) more or less confirms what the Brocas Print from 1826 showed.

Both reveal similar Dutch-gables on Castle Street with The Parade (Nicholas Street) in the background.

It seems they cleared the houses running alongside the castle to make way for the then new wider bridge and road.
