POISED PORTAL BY EILEEN McDONAGH – SONY 90mm MACRO LENS
The Custom House Park is a small park located behind the former Custom House (now the Hunt Museum) on Rutland Street. It is more or less limited to pedestrians and access is not always guaranteed , as it is part of the riverside walk through Limerick, which passes through Arthur’s Quay Park, past the weir and the small marina, over Sylvester O’Halloran Bridge to Merchants Quay.
The trees in the park consist of Horse Chestnut, London Plane, Maple and Sycamore.
Poised Portal by Eileen McDonagh (1987). Constructed from limestone, it stands on Custom House Quay.
In the past I have had difficulty photographing this because of minor anti-social issues but today there were no problems.
