Geocache Description:

The cache is a small metal tube. Only large enough to hold a few small items. All three waypoints are on O'Callaghan Strand, so if your calculations direct you somewhere else examine the clues again.


This is a short walk along O'Callaghan Strand on the banks of the river Shannon. From the starting position, across the river you can see the Limerick Boat Club building that lost its roof in the storm of February 2014. http://www.limerickpost.ie/2014/02/12/video-roof-blown-off-shannon-rowing-club-boat-house/

There is on street disk parking on O'Callaghan Strand. During normal business hours you would be lucky to find an available parking spot here. In the evening or on Sundays you should have no problems.

Richard took to the air in what year? Divide by 2 and add 5 to get a three digit number A.

The Norwegian ship was how many ton? To this value add the number of letters in it's intended destination and the number of children who died to get the three digit number B.

When was the wet dock opened. Discard the century and subtract 7 to get the two digit number C.
