THE PEOPLES PARK AT PERY SQUARE IN LIMERICK [PHOTOGRAPHED USING AN IPHONE XR]

I miss my visits to Limerick but am hoping that I can begin to visit again in 2021.

The park was formally opened in 1877, in memory of Richard Russell, a prominent local businessman.

The Peoples' Park located at Pery Square in Limerick, just west of the railway station and bus terminal.

The Park boasts a number of interesting items including a memorial upon a giant pillar to Thomas Spring Rice, MP for the city of Limerick from 1820 - 1832, a 19th-century Bandstand, an ornate drinking fountain (which I really like) and two gazebos.

The park was forced to close for two weeks in February 2014 after Storm Darwin destroyed or badly damaged nineteen trees.

Of the nineteen one was one was especially important as it was both old and rare. The ornamental tree known as a ‘Tetradium Danielli” was about 80 or 90 years old. It is also referred to as a Bee Bee tree because it's late summer flowers attract very large numbers of bees. The park supervisor decided that it would be a good idea to invite Zambian woodcarver Paradazi Havatyitye to carve three bees in the remaining stump. The park now features a number of 'chainsaw sculptures'.

I USE THIS AND IT IS ALREADY FULL

One of the biggest ongoing problems that I have is storage and the problems gets worse by the year. 4 Years ago I purchased two LaCie 8TB thunder bolt drives and eighteen months later I purchased a 12TB drive and then in August of 2019 I needed a 20TB unit and it is already full. I do have an aggressive backup policy which does require a lot of storage so i suppose that I should not be surprised. I should mention that I use Amazon Photos and currently am using 12TB of online storage.


I REALLY DO NEED A SOLUTION
