What a Find! Tourist Discovers Rare Book at Limerick Milk Market

 Jason Ludlow with his rare copy of Wuthering Heights – www.limerickleader.ie

I’ve been to a lot of markets in Ireland, but I certainly didn’t have the keen eye of Jason Ludlow. He’s a tourist from South Africa who picked up an American first edition copy of Emily Bronte’s classic Wuthering Heights for €3. The same book sells for €8,000!

He found the treasure at the Limerick Milk Market. One of the largest of its kind in Ireland, it has been around since 1852, but has undergone some major upgrades in the last year.

Read more about the rare book find in the Limerick Leader and have a look at the video below about the Milk Market courtesy of I Love Limerick.

  1. The Milk Market in Limerick is great for locals and tourists. You can buy the best and freshest produce direct from the producers, arts and crafts and many other things. Wander around with a hot coffee and fresh pastry………….
