irishalan: We are in the middle of a pandemic and so I am disabling all of my caches for now. Please DO NOT go looking for this cache. As much as I like geocaching it is not something that can be considered essential.

I will be checking on my caches / performing maintenance when I am allowed (based on government guidelines).

About Limerick Colbert Station:

The station opened on 28 August 1858, replacing a temporary station 500 metres (1,600 ft) further east, which had operated from 9 May 1848. It was built by the Waterford and Limerick Railway (W&LR), which ran its first train, as far as Tipperary, on Tuesday, 9 May 1848, with intermediate stations at Killonan, Pallasgreen and Oola (all since closed).

Two months later the GS&WR connected their Dublin–Cork line with the W&LR at Limerick Junction, near Tipperary. The work was carried out at the height of the Irish Potato Famine, resulting in extreme financial difficulties for the company. Originally named "Limerick", the station was given the name Colbert on 10 April 1966 in commemoration of Cornelius Colbert, one of the executed leaders of the Easter Rising of 1916.
