LIMERICK – King John’s Castle – The Treaty Stone

The Treaty Stone was erected on its pedestal in 1865, and it now occupies a prominent position at Thomond Bridge, and across the river from St John’s Castle in Limerick. Tradition holds that the Treaty was signed on this stone near Thomond Bridge, and within sight of both armies.This stone was originally a stone used by country people for getting on their horses when leaving town. The Treaty was signed in a tent some distance away, but the Treaty Stone marks the spot where Sarsfield and Wauchope first negotiated the ceasefire with Ruvigny and Scavenmoer.
