Catchment Area

The catchment area covered by West Limerick Resources in County Limerick is located in the Mid West of the Country and is within the jurisdiction of the Mid-West Regional Authority Area and the South and East Regional Assembly. We cover a catchment area of approximately 520 square miles in the west of county Limerick with a population of 68,653 (2011 Census).

The area bounds Limerick City to the East and in the West rises to the Mullaghareirk Mountains along the Cork and Kerry borders.  The Shannon Estuary forms the northern boundary, on which lies Foynes, an important port for the region.  Two national routes, the N69 and N21 connecting Limerick to Kerry also service the area.
