Sixmilebridge

Sixmilebridge is a small town in Co Clare. Located between Ennis and Limerick City, the town is a short distance away from the main N18 road, being on the old road between the two. The village of Kilmurry is also part of the Sixmilebridge parish. Sixmilebridge partly serves as a dormitory town for workers in the Limerick city, Ennis and Shannon region, with hundreds of modern housing units being built to accommodate demand in recent years. The commercial core of Sixmilebridge has effectively tripled in size in recent years too, with many new retail units and businesses choosing to locate in the village. A unique feature of Sixmilebridge is the highly decorated but functional "duck inn" on the O'Garney River, occupied by a thriving population of ducks. The duck inn is a floating raft with glass windows and painted walls. It houses the ducks during winter and is also where their locally consumed eggs are hatched and collected. It forms part of the tourist trail of Sixmilebridge. There are two primary schools in the parish, including Sixmilebridge National School. For secondary education, students go to schools in Limerick, Shannon, Ennis and Tulla. Angling is popular in the area while there is also a GAA club and soccer club, as well as a pitch and putt and nine hole golf course. The Limerick–Athenry railway line also passes through the village
