River Road describes the results of 28 excavations in this landscape, on archaeological sites discovered in lowland pastures east and south of the city and among the mudflats and reed beds of the River Shannon floodplain to the west.

The excavations reveal a vivid picture of life through the millennia, from hunter-gatherers making stone tools on the banks of the Shannon 8,000 years ago, to the brick-makers of Coonagh tending their kilns to supply building material for the fine Georgian houses of Limerick City. How people lived, worked and died is reflected in the objects discovered, such as the Bronze Age razors from a cremation burial in Peafield, and the glass jewellery, bone whistle and copper-alloy brooches from early medieval settlement enclosures in Newtown and Coonagh.

These discoveries deepen our knowledge of the ways in which our ancestors made their homes and livelihoods in the Limerick area since early prehistory’
