This clock tower is situated close to the beautiful People's Park and the lovely Georgian Pery Square. The Dominican Church is in the same square. The whole area is good for a stroll.

Girls from the nearby Tait's Clothing Factory used to meet under the clock when they had a 'date' after work and the 'limerick' on the directional sign recognises this. Its a Limerick landmark that will outlive us all.
