Ireland Trip 35: Video Introduction of King John's Castle

Archaeology under the castle
This is part 35 of our Ireland trip, and we're going to give you a 2 minute (produced) short video introduction to what you'll find at King John's Castle...

Welcome to King John's Castle, on 'King's Island' in the heart of medieval Limerick City. The stunning new exhibition at King John's Castle brings to life over 800 years of dramatic local history.

Although this features two young kids, and there are things for kids to do there, it's really full of history for adults. You'll learn about the area from the time of the Vikings through the Irish rule to Henry VIII to today.

  You'll get to experience a bit of some of the video displays, who take you through attacks on the castle and tell you about different people who worked in various professions within the castle.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
