Thanks, Tony. Agree with Sissy: Lots of excellent information.

One aspect of the title strikes me and that is the difficulty with the term 'Shannon' in Shannon Region.

It must be very confusing for those not familiar with the geography of Ireland. Come to think of it, it is also very confusing for those who are.

There's the River Shannon, flowing all the way from Co Cavan in the north Midlands to the Shannon Estuary/mouth of the Shannon, involving Co Clare to the north and, to the south, Co Limerick and north Kerry:


Probably, focusing on Shannon as in Shannon Airport area is the way to go!

The area covered in the brochure is Clare, Limerick, north Tipperary and south Offaly.

Similar difficulties with the term Midlands or even Mid Ireland, which I came across recently.

After all of that, thanks again, Tony. Great resource.

Wow, Tony, what a wealth of information there.

It is an invaluable guide for anyone visiting the area, no matter what their age.

Thanks for the link
