The origin in the Limerick area of so many of Ireland’s greatest treasures, such 14th September, 2007 - 13th January, 2008 as ancient hoards of gold jewellery and the incomparable Ardagh chalice, leads to the conclusion that OF LIMERICK’S SILVER skilled goldsmiths were at work in the Limerick area for many centuries. The names of these talented early craftsmen don’t survive; happily some of their work does, testimony to the high standards of their craft. Throughout the turbulent history of Limerick, goldsmiths and silversmiths plied their craft, and contributed Edited by John R. Bowen & Conor O’Brien fully to the civic life of the city, at least four serving as mayor. It is hoped that this book and the exhibition which it complements, will do much to bring to life in a new age, a solid appreciation of the work of makers such as John Bucknor, Robert Smith, Jonathan Buck, Collins Brehon, Maurice Fitzgerald and the peerless Joseph Johns. This profusely illustrated book shows rare and precious ecclesiastical pieces of both Roman Catholic and Anglican traditions, impressive and imposing civic, ceremonial and commemorative pieces, as well as a plethora of items of domestic and personal plate, ranging from a splendid soup tureen, to a modest teaspoon of simple and naive beauty. The silver and gold trophies and medals won by generations of Limerick sportsmen and women form an absorbing part of the exhibition and are uniquely showcased here, having been won in contests of one sort or another, in places as diverse as Cardiff, Calcutta, Croke Park and Clogheen! A particularly valuable element of the book is the detailed directory of the goldsmiths and allied trades of Limerick up to the present day. It also includes a bibliography for further reading and study. John Bowen is Chairman and Chief Executive of The Bowen Group, a substantial Irish construction and property group. He is a Chartered Engineer by profession and holds a BE from UCC, as well as an MBA from the University of Warwick. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers of Ireland. He has long been a student of Irish provincial silver, its history and context, with a special emphasis on the silver of Cork. Conor O’Brien retired from a career in the pharmaceutical industry in County Wicklow in 1998. He holds a BSc and a PhD from University College Dublin and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Over the years he has devoted much of his free time to researching old Irish silver, and has published several papers on the subject in specialist journals.
