At the time I did not know we were visiting one of the oldest and most historical buildings in Limerick. This Cathedral was founded in 1168 on the site of a palace donated by Donal Mor O'Brien King of Munster. You can read more about the history of this majestic Cathedral at : http://www.cathedral.limerick.anglican.org/
As I near closer to the Cathedral entrance that was once a place were soldiers sharpened their swords I began to notice the many shades of green Ireland is famous for.
Along the stone wall tucked in between all that lushes green were some fuchsia blooming. I am not sure what the purple flower is. I did pick up a Irish Wild Flower book today but the only think close to the bloom discription would be Wild Thyme . I also wanted to share an image of the green that grows along rock walk ways and walls which is pictured in the bottom left of the upper collage. Although I did not see many blooms today it was surely the greenest!
