Wild Geese

I had heard the term Wild Geese quite a few times in my life but never expected to find out how it originated on the historical timeline surrounding The Treaty Stone.

Great Limerick Landmark, we stumbled across it unplanned on a walk along with river. Great to see in person, as I had read about it before our trip. Nice location.

This stone is representation of a very important event in history. Not much to look at, but if you are passing the way, don't miss it.

As the title suggests, there is not much to see here. A historic rock and little else, it is not exactly good for anything other than a quick photo. You'll probably see it if you are on a tour of Limerick or visiting King Johns Castle but I wouldn't exactly go out of my way to see it.

The treaty stone sits at the corner. It is really interesting. You can actually get great photos with King John's Castle in the background. Just follow the river!

This stone is where the Treaty of Limerick was signed between the Jacobite defenders of Limerick and the soldiers of William of Orange, William III King of England, II King of Scots, and William III, Stadtholder of the United Provinces of the Netherlands. Basically this was the last stand of the Jacobites in Ireland following the defeat at the Battle... More

The Treaty Stone is a very important history piece on Limerick. I read quite a lot about the war and the peace treaty. Although somehow I felt that it could have been more on the landmark itself, maybe more totens with illustrations about the war, there is was only one totem showing very briefly what the treaty is about.

You need to read up on the fascinating history behind the treaty stone before going to see it. It's one of the things any visitor to this interesting city must do. It's located in an historic part of Limerick...but do your research beforehand, otherwise it's a bit underwhelming

I regularly pass this iconic stone when driving in Limerick. It is in a lovely location overlooking the River Shannon close to St Munchin's Church and across the river (via Thomond Bridge) from King John's Castle. It is close to the Curragower falls and at the end of a lovely riverside walk.
