Re: Re: first brick house in Limerick
. . . . I decided to go one further and use the information from the Civil Survey together with all the cartographic information available in the Limerick Museum to draught a new map which is far more accurate (not just a pretty picture).
Outstanding, re-plotting historical maps is a head-wrecker, but incredibly valuable.
What does your map tell us about the Mary Street ‘Billys’, opposite Gaol Lane? How is it that there appears to be a laneway opening in the centre of the group where there should be a party wall? or was the centre pair a single property with twin gables? (or was the whole thing a single property with four gables?). Does the last of the Billys line up with Fanning’s Castle, or not?
The map and accompanying booklet on the extant medieval fabric of Limerick is due to be published in September.
Will there be complementary copies for Archiseekers?
