"Ah, that feels better!" says he,
As he quickly went for a pee.
"Don't want the clap,"

"It's no good for a chap"
"Especially a copper like me."

Talking Today is Limerick Day!

Brief Break:

A view across the River Shannon in Limerick, County Limerick, Ireland

A visit to Limerick on Limerick Day

Today is Limerick Day, and what better place to celebrate this unofficial holiday than in Limerick, Ireland. The connection between the historic city and the humorous, five-line verse is unclear. Several theories have been purported, none of them definitive. But the city of Limerick has embraced its namesake poetry style and in recent years the Limerick Writers’ Centre has hosted an annual competition called Bring Your Limericks to Limerick.

We’re looking across the River Shannon at the historic part of the city, a medieval section once walled off by the Vikings around 812 and known today as King’s Island. That’s King John’s Castle on the left, built on the order of King John in 1200. Over on the right is St. Mary’s Cathedral, which dates from 1168 and is the oldest building in Limerick still in use. History suggests the area was settled long before the Vikings conquered it and set about destroying Irish public records. The earliest map of Ireland, produced in 150 CE by historian and overall polymath Ptolemy, shows a place called ‘Regia’ at the same site as King’s Island.

Now back to Bergerie1 and his superb introductory line!

I once shot a clockwise haggis
Near Forfar, where the old bag is.
As the haggis ran counter
Clockwise, I'd mount her.
Now she knows what a shag is.

In the city of Limerick, King John

"I'll get lampooned in verse.
Me, king of the castle,
They'll think I'm an astle.
In rhyme it'll sound so much worse."
