Ted Russell Docks

The first image gives the actual measurements of the dock itself. Maximal length is 422 metres with a maximal width of 140 metres.

The second image is that of Bannatynes Mill. This building is a gem and it must be conserved. The image is scanned from Patrick E.F. O’Dwyer’s school book “The Irish Landscape in Photographs and Maps”.

The third image must have been taken from the Clarion hotel. It shows the docks in a rather run down state. The second architectural feature worth conserving here is the Dock’s Clock. Some fifteen years ago or so, some enlightened person made a suggestion on the local press to simply move the dock’s clock onto the roundabout at the new bridge (Jury’s Inn / Riverpoint). It would be a landmark monument to Limerick’s Maritime past and it would be seen daily by thousands of people.

Any thoughts?
