Keane. Of Listowel, the latter wrote:"Beautiful Listowel, serenaded night and day by the gentle waters of the River Feale.Listowel where it is easier to write than not to write,Where first love never dies, and the tall streets hide the loveliness,The heartbreak and the moods, great and small,Of all the gentle souls of a great and good community.Sweet, incomparable hometown that shaped and made me."LocationListowel is on the N69 Limerick - Foynes - Tralee road.
