STEAMBOAT QUAY ON THE BANK OF THE RIVER SHANNON
Every time I visit this location Steamboat Willie comes to mind.
Before the construction of the floating Dock at Steamboat Quay goods arrived in Limerick City via Arthurs Quay, Merchant’s Quay, Howley’s Quay, Bishop’s Quay, Fisher’s Quay and Harvey’s Quay. I am not sure but there may have been a working dock on the North Bank of the river.
Steamboat Willie is a 1928 American animated short film directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. It was produced in black-and-white by Walt Disney Studios and was released by Celebrity Productions. The cartoon is considered the debut of Mickey Mouse and his girlfriend Minnie, although both the characters appeared several months earlier in a test screening of Plane Crazy.
