    Sarsfield's Rock

    Near Pallasgreen
    This large rock located in the centre of a field in Ballyneety, Co. Limerick, is actually a historic monument. From the rock's vantage point you can enjoy a panoramic view of the magnificent surrounding countryside. The rock looks down on the spot where, during Sarsfield's Ride on the night of August 10, 1690, Sarsfield and his cavalry descended on the Williamite camp. They captured it and destroyed the guns and ammunition, thus bringing to an end one of the sieges of Limerick. General Patrick Sarsfield was subsequently known as the heroic defender of Limerick. The monument was unveiled by one of the Presidents of Ireland, O'Dalaigh. It features plaques in several languages describing the route taken by Sarsfield and his men on that infamous night. This is a historic tribute to one of Limerick's most important sons.
