King John's Castle is on River Shannon at King's Island.
You can see great detail & photographs of area at Google Earth. I typed in 'King's Island, Limerick, Ireland' and a marker came up to the west of the actual castle but if you look to the right of the marker the shape of the island is quite clear and then you can zoom in on the area.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
