Irish gifts at Milk Market

The Milk Market in Limerick

One of the highlights of my trip to Ireland last week was a visit with new friends to the Milk Market located in the city of Limerick. The Limerick Market Trustees have been operating since 1852. Apart from the Milk Market, which will be undergoing a major remodel until 2010 , the market on Bedford Row, off O’Connell Street, is open every Sunday afternoon.
