I do not know in which Limerick building this bell is in but its weight is 31-1-19 in C# 274 dated 1931. It was originally destined for the Chicago carillon No.60. May be the Limerick bell was a rushed order (as Cyril sometimes does) or was inferior to be placed in the carillon but still useable.

    There is indeed a single G&J bell at Limerick, dedication not given but might be S Mary's Cathedral. Details from Vol 12 p106: Serial No 5620;  33 3/16";  7-2-6;  C  517;  16/07/1936.
  I was in Limerick with Mike Pomeroy (TC of St Marys) on Wednesday afternoon. He says that there is another large (35cwt ish) G&J bell hung in a church, a few 100 yds east of St Mary's Cathedral. He recons that this was installaed about 1936 also.
