South’s Pub


4 Quinlan St, LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • A popular venue, this pub featured in Frank McCourt’s memoir and movie Angela’s Ashes (1996/1999). The scale and footprint of this building retain the character of its original use as a coach house.
  • This site was one of 12 listed venues for the 28th edition of EVA in 2004, curated by Zdenka Badovinac (b. 1958, Slovenia) and titled Imagine Limerick.
  • It was one of a number of bars in Limerick that were used for a project titled Traces of Fire (2004) by artists Volkmar Klien (b. 1971, Austria) and Ed Lear (b. 1971, UK). Traces of Fire was a city-wide tracking project, in which cigarette lighters with tracking devices were surreptitiously left to be picked up by members of the public. The artists monitored the movement of the lighters across the city, creating a map of the city that was later exhibited in City Hall, Merchants Quay.
