Limerick's small Jewish cemetery, opened in 1902, is situated in the western suburbs of the city, close to the suburbs of Newcastle and Castletroy, in the vicinity of Kilmurry (and is variouly described by reference to any of such locations). It is located just to the south of the Dublin Road, almost opposite "The Hurler" public house. The cemetery is now maintained by Limerick Civic Trust and the Limerick City Council as a small public green space. Source: David Shulman, JCR-UK Webmaster.
