The siege of Limerick in western Ireland was the second siege of the town during the Williamite War in Ireland (1689-1691). The city, held by Jacobite forces, was able to beat off a Williamite assault in 1690. However, after a second siege in August-October 1691, it surrendered on favorable terms. This effectively ended James II's hopes of reclaiming the throne.
