The Limerick Inn, 106 Kent Street, Upper Gornal.
The Limerick in Kent Street must have existed before 1857

29 September, 1903.
The Birmingham Evening Gazette.
A painful story of a drunken wife was told to the Sedgley Magistrates yesterday when a publican of Upper Gornal sought for a separation from his wife.
The applicant was John Rowe of the Limerick Inn, Dudley Road, Upper Gornal. He said that she was a habitual drunkard, and not only created discomfort to the family but also jeopardised the licence. He was afraid of her when she was in drink, as she had on two occasions got a carving knife to cut his throat when in bed.
The magistrates granted a separation order, the applicant to have the custody of the five children, and also to contribute 8s a week towards the wife's maintenance.--Mrs Rowe declined to attend the court, and the police were instructed to serve the order as soon as possible.
