Overview

The Treaty Stone stands on a plinth across Thomond Bridge, on the opposite bank of the River Shannon from King John's Castle. It is a commemoration of the signing of the Treaty of Limerick in 1691. The Treaty was drafted following two sieges that took place in the city. The Treaty was signed on this stone, subsequently known as the Treaty Stone. In the end, the Treaty of Limerick was never honored; the Penal Laws of the 18th century, in fact, were in direct contravention of it.
