    Where in Limerick - old photograph

    Does anyone know the location for this photo?
    Somewhere in Limerick City/County
    It just got forwarded into my account, someone from the city archives looking for it apparently.



    I've two theories going at the moment, neither has helped me find the location.

    1. My initial observations is that down at the end of the road they look like two traditional boats pulled up. But I could be wrong. And that could be part of a bridge arch (all guesses). Maybe an old ford? (not the car)

    2. just behind the people in the background could be a humpback bridge.

    Photo didn't copy across Huwie (at least I can't see it)

                Could be the Mill Road in Corbally.

                    Ya that was my first guess. Then having looked at old map on the osi website certain things don't add up.
                    Such as the alignment of the buildings to the corner (now with that hurling statue). Also, whatever that is in the background does not match anything there now or on old maps.

                    Maybe I'm wrong and it is Annacotty. It would certainly help if I could find old photos of the place online to compare

                      Not sure you have the steepness on the mill road.


                      It's not Adare, NCW, Abbeyfeale, Rathkeale, Bruree or any of those is it?

                          It reminds me of some old shots I saw of Castleconnell before. I can't find the exact one but this one is similar

                          http://www.oldirishimages.com/towns%...es/LK043.shtml

                          I also see similarities mentioned to Annacotty and Mill Road Corbally (were there old cottages down the Mill Road before Meadowbrook and Silverbrook etc were built? I can't remember)
