For this year’s #LimerickDay we got some members of our team to write their very own Limericks with themes of medieval times, the medieval mile, history, archaeology and of course, the Medieval Mile Museum!
Here are some of the Limericks our team wrote, enjoy!
Pat, Museum Guide wrote:
A Bishop once lived called LeDrede
Who wanted a witch to be dead
But try as he might
Alice took flight
So he burned Petronella instead.
Pat, loving a Limerick, also wrote:
Against Kilkenny the Bishop could scold
but the church was outside of the fold
The Cathedral could fall
On the far side of the wall
‘cos the merchants still had all the gold.
Sharon, Museum Assistant wrote:
There was a high cross of Ahenny
For King of which there were many
He mounted his cross
On a hill full of moss
and it has stood there, but not in Kilkenny
Pat wanted to win so he submitted a third Limerick:
The great cross outside of Ahenny
was a symbol of power over many
But not in the grip
of the kingdom of Tipp
But in the hands of our Kingdom, Kilkenny
Thomas, Museum Guide, wrote:
St.Mary’s was the merchant church of Kilkenny
Many came for worshipand meetings aplenty
None more so than the Rothes and the Shees
who helped build the city of Kilkenny
