Newcastlewest through the ages

Mary Lynch and Shannon Copse created a fascinating project  about Newcastlewest, through the ages. Newcastle West, the county town of Limerick, lying at the heart of Munster’s great Golden Vale. It is a town with a history, a Desmond stronghold which has seen wars and conquest, harmony and development, a town which has adapted and changed to become a thriving centre with a wide range of facilities and services, underpinned by industry and enterprise. Located on the banks of the Arra River, Newcastle West is an expansive town, with lots of green and leafy spaces that make for relaxed and healthy life-styles, and which has drawn new people to live here over the past 25 years.
