THE TAIT CLOCK TOWER IN LIMERICK – ABOUT TEN MINUTES BEFORE SUNSET
The clock does not keep time and I have noticed some posts online claiming that the the area is not well maintained however there was a lot of work ongoing in the area while I was there.
I could see this from my hotel and I really like this clock.
The Clock was erected in 1867 as a memorial to Sir Peter Tait who was mayor of Limerick from 1866 to 1868.
Taits Clock is located in Bakers Place [Pery Street – Davis Street] across from the Dominican Church. According to most guides the architect of the clock was Charles Corbett. However the NIAH and the DIA claim that it was William Edward and not Charles Corbett who designed the clock.
