This is The Limerick Ben, Big Ben’s little brother. Four faces and a landmark in Limerick. It’s worth seeing or using as a landmark.

This clock is in honor of a man who immigrated to Limerick as a youngster (13 or 14). It's the story of rags to riches then decline of fortune. If you happen to be in the area, take a peak.

It's a clock in a square, I don't see why this would be a tourist attraction. Teenagers with skateboards hang out there.

Tait's clock is very much part of our history and folklore situated very prominently with it's four face clock facing the different streets. It has been a friend to many of us over many years telling us the time before mobiles came into being. Here people gather to chat; children come to play; others use it as a meeting point; some just come and sit to pass away a few moments. We are proud to have it as part of our limerick heritage which is kept in pristine condition and indeed respected as such.

If this is close to the pubs your visiting, stop by, but don't go out of your way too much. It's a nice little square, but that's it.

Taits clock stands tall pride of place in a quiet location there is a very wide area around the clock itself so one can sit and relax.

Girls from the nearby Tait's Clothing Factory used to meet under the clock when they had a 'date' after work and the 'limerick' on the directional sign recognises this. Its a Limerick landmark that will outlive us all.

This is one of the first things noticed while walking down from the train station. It looks like it's in a very quiet part of the city but then again it's right next to Saint Saviours Church, so I'm sure it gets busy sometimes. Named after Peter Tait who was Mayor of Limerick between 1865-68 and was erected in 1867.

Such a quick stop on your way to the train station and if you’re in a rush can be easily missed. Hello Big Ben of Limerick!
