The Treaty Stone is (allegedly) the stone on which the Treaty of Limerick was signed after the end of the siege of Limerick in the 1690's.

The area where the Treaty Stone is set is the most beautiful part of the city, overlooking the Shannon, across from King John's Castle and St. Mary's Cathedral (the oldest Cathedral in Ireland). The walk along the river, leading to the stone is truly one of the lovliest walks of any city anywhere in the world (including Paris, Rome, Prague... More
