Catherine Street

The Imperial Hotel in Catherine Street, later Limerick Bacon Company and currently a restaurant, is a hive of Civil War activity when this picture was taken in the early ’20s. It shows heavily armed men approach the hotel while a number keep alert outside. It is worth noting the nonchalant attitude of the youngsters in the shot who appear to be well used to the sight of armed men around the streets of the city.
