A bid is being prepared for European Capital of Culture 2020, and you’ll find rich repositories of art in the Limerick City Gallery and Hunt Museum in particular.
Limerick City Gallery is located in a slickly refurbished building fronting onto People's Park (look closely, and you'll see tiny bronze figures crawling all over the facade) - it's got a nifty cafe, and afterwards you can take a stroll, or tire the kids out in the playground. Limerick’s grittier side makes an ideal canvas for street art, and you’ll find cool pieces in the most unlikely places.
Speakers include former EU Parliament President Pat Cox; Paul Quigley, EY Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 winner and CEO of News Whip; and RTE correspondent Joe Little. The voluntary organisation, was established in early 2016 by a group of Limerick professionals and business people based in Dublin.
The group aims to promote the economic and socio-cultural profile of Limerick and create an influential and co-ordinated presence in Dublin to advocate for the Mid-West region.
