Image Description

Photo of: West of Ireland: Limerick: Lough Gur.

Lough Gur and the surrounding land is of world-importance as an archaeoligical site. There are visible remains of six thousand years of human settlement, from Neolithic to Medieval times.

Lough Gur is also an important ecological area, botanically rich and a sanctuary for migratory birds.

'Lough Gur has been called the Enchanted Lake; some say that in ancient days there was a city where the lake is now.

Even now, they say one may see the drowned city, its walls, castle, houses and church, perfect and intact'.
