Limerick, SK

The village of Limerick, Saskatchewan, was named after a place in Ireland. It's population is about 130 inhabitants.
In June, 2012 we drove into Limerick to take photos of the grain elevator that's still standing there. It seems like it's out in the middle of nowhere, but that's typical for much of southern Saskatchewan.
The joke about being able to watch your dog run away from home for days must have originated here somewhere. :>)
It's good to see that the elevator still stands and appears to be in use by the local farmers.
