Who's Who of Limerick

This is a listing of notable Limerick people compiled from the local studies and reference collections at Limerick City Library. It is not an exhaustive list but is fairly comprehensive - we consulted almost 100 standard reference and local studies works in its compilation.

Some criteria for inclusion had to be applied and, in general, we only included people who have received coverage in more than strictly local sources. We made one or two exceptions to this rule (e.g. Peter Tait was a figure of great significance in 19th century Limerick but has not been included in non-local reference sources thus far).
