Limerick (pronounced -enˈlɪmrɪk; Irish: Luimneach -gaˈl̪imʲɨnʲəx) is the fourth largest city in the Republic of Ireland, and the principal city in County Limerick. When taking the extra-municipal suburbs into account, Limerick is the third largest conurbation in the Republic of Ireland, with a population of 90,757. Limerick is the second-largest city in the province of Munster, an area which constitutes the midwest and southwest of Ireland.
Limerick is situated on several curves and islands of the River Shannon, which spreads into an estuary shortly after Limerick. Road infrastructure features three main crossing points near the city centre (an additional river tunnel to the west of the three bridges is expected to open in 2010). Limerick is one of the constituent cities of the Cork-Limerick-Galway corridor, which has a population of 1 million.
