What a weekend in Limerick

by | May 3, 2017 | LATEST NEWS |

Well unless you left the country totally you will be aware of the weekend that has just gone down in our City. At long last we seem to have banished the shackles of the seemingly eternal inferiority complex that hung over us here. The Mid-West Capital stood up this weekend and showed not just the country BUT THE WORLD how to have a Party. The forecast from Met Eireann was none too pretty but as if to recognise the effort and the massive swell of pride that took over this weekend a HUGE HIGH hit the City and the result was that the clouds headed elsewhere and Mr Blueskies took  over.

Thousands of people hit the streets to partake in Barbeques …Funfairs…Jet Skiing…Rock Concerts….Fireworks….you name it and it was here to be sampled. Then if you hadn’t enough the Great Limerick Run with 13,000 + participants hit the streets again to sunshine, music,  blood sweat and tears but big big smiles were order of the day at the finish line.

So why write about this…..SIMPLE…..We are well  able to  document the negative and always seem to skim over any good that goes on out there. This weekend resulted in so many good things. We had lots of smiley faces for a start….happy citizens ….business transacted ….positive news for our region ….thousands of EURO raised for charities, lots of visitors with good words to take back with them and a busy vibrant city centre which is the ultimate reward for all. A huge well done to everyone who was involved in the organisation of RiverFest and Great Limerick Run…you folk are worthy Ambassadors for Limerick…..oh and I  had my best time in the half marathon in 4 years….just sayin!
