    Atheist Ireland are holding a coffee meet and greet this Saturday 14th May at 11am in Jack Mondays, Arthurs Quay. It's a great way to meet other like minded non-religious types in Limerick over a nice cup of coffee and a bun! Pm me if you want any more details.

    I saw a post on Facebook about an airshow taking place in Foynes on Sunday the 17th. Has it been held previously? Worth a look? Cheers.

    I'm going to miss it but this weekend in the South Court, they are hosting a Diecast Model Show and I think the folks from Brick are going to be there. Should be an interesting event.

    "The Beauty Queen of Leenane" is playing in the Lime Tree Theatre all week, but I believe it's pretty much sold out already. I was lucky to get a seat in the back row last night.

    Mick Flannery plays Dolan's tomorrow night (Thursday).

    BellX1 play the Milk Market/Big Top on Friday 28th of October.

    Want your say on Limerick issues that affect you?

    Then come along to Limerick Public Participation Network (PPN) Community Day at Limerick City and County Council offices, Merchants Quay to meet your Limerick PPN representatives.

    Limerick PPN provides a new way for the public to engage with the Limerick City & County Council. It is made up of organisations from the community and voluntary, social inclusion and environment sectors. There will be a dedicated forum on the day seeking feedback on how Limerick Council and services can be made more accessible for all the members of our community. As well as this there will be two facilitated discussion during the day on how we can make universal access work in Limerick.
    These presentations will take place at the following times:
    11-11.30am: ‘What universal design means for Limerick’ (O’Herlihy Access consultancy firm)

    The second Limerick Speakers Corner is taking place this Saturday 3rd June, 1pm at Arthurs Quay Park. Last month's event was great fun and a real opportunity for people to share their ideas and thoughts. All are very welcome!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,551 ✭✭✭panda100


    I think I'm just writing to myself in this thread :p

    The monthly Limerick Speakers Corner continues on Saturday 1st July, 1pm at Arthurs Quay Park. Last month, we actually had a speaker giving out about internet forums so hopefully there will be lots of boardies along this month to counteract this :pac:

    Basically a pub session for anyone who wants to go out and speak Irish for the night. It started off a few months ago and some great events have been held around the country ever since. There's no central group behind them. Just local people getting together and giving grown-ups a chance to practise their Irish in a fun social situation.

    Would have loved to have gone to that, but it clashes with the February edition of the 'On the Nail' poetry night. >_<

  • Registered Users Posts: 608 ✭✭✭mdmix


    ya it was definitely there and said 2018. its still on the homepage but the link is dead. i suppose with the lack of info anywhere else we can assume its not going ahead. they prob started planning but cancelled it somewhere along the way.

    As IO mentioned in another thread we could all probably make a bit more of an effort to spread the news when we see something is going to be on in the city.

    With that in mind...
    Limerick Food Group are hosting Urban Food Fest in the Milk Market tomorrow evening - food stalls, summer beats and free in!

    https://www.instagram.com/p/Bj7bNrdlGdL/?utm_source=ig_twitter_share&igshid=1m5kmuri9dqdz

    https://www.limerick.ie/discover/whats-on/food-drink/urban-food-fest
    The popular Urban Food Fest returns with a street food evening that will take place in the Milk Market on Thursday, June 14. Organisers are promising “one big Limerick city summer party” with a fiesta theme.

    The first Urban Food Fest took place in 2016, organised by the voluntary Limerick Food Group, who are promising the historic Milk Market will be “transformed into a street food mecca” as producers, market traders, restaurants, and hotels come together for the food event.

    “Come along and sample tasters from various stalls, savoury to sweet, hot and cold, all with a summer theme, and to a summery soundtrack of funky beats courtesy of live entertainment,” said Olivia O’Sullivan, a member of the organising committee.

    “We are all about promoting local food and drink, and Limerick as a quality food destination, and this event showcases all of that. It’s a great experience and we have learned a lot since our first outing so this year it will be better than ever,” she added.

    The event will have free entry and will operate a cashless token system – €15 for five tokens – and it will take place from 6pm until 10pm on June 14.

    Something like this was on last year as part of the Pig Town thing IIRC, and it was pretty good.
