Mallow Street


Mallow Street, LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • Mallow Street was named after the Rev. William Cecil Pery (1721–94), who had been consecrated Bishop of Killala in 1781, and Bishop of Limerick in 1784, and was created Baron Glentworth of Mallow in 1790.
  • This site was one of a number of city centre locations for artist Regina Corcoran’s (Ireland) Alternative Gardens – an urban nature trail (2005), which guided people to locations where weeds were naturally occurring in the urban environment.
  • The artist described her intentions to ‘explore fracture points where nature and civilisation collide and overlap within the urban environment’. The work was designed to encourage ‘people to question their perception of value and order’ and ‘explore the potential of alternatives offered by a world largely disregarded as something quite separate to the human condition’.
