Study Abroad in IrelandLimerick is Ireland’s first city of culture, located in the province of Munster on the west coast. The Irish Chamber Orchestra is based at the University of Limerick. From the Limerick City Gallery of Art to its Fresh Film Festival every spring, the arts are widely celebrated. Traditionally Limerick’s economy was based in agriculture but has recently expanded to include tech ventures and medical device production. Known for more than the humorous five-line verses with an AABBA rhyme pattern, contemporary writers and poets include Frank McCourt (Angela’s Ashes) and Mark Whelan (Cuisle Limerick City International Poetry Festival).
