Join the conversation about Limerick City - LIVING LIMERICK - CITY ENGAGE

Limerick City and County Council and the School of Architecture University of Limerick will be hosting a series of community engagement events throughout 2017 to collect people’s thoughts, hopes and opinions about living in Limerick. 

  • Share your views on the future direction of the city.
  • How can we best take advantage of Limerick’s medieval heritage?
  • What about Georgian Limerick? How can the city best connect to its greatest asset the River Shannon?

This week of events will be the first of many throughout the year focusing on different themes, such as the Riverbank, Georgian Limerick and the medieval quarter and how best these places can be improved under the banner 'Living Limerick- City Engage'.​ Living Limerick is about developing a vision for living in the historic core of Limerick city.  Through the process we will explore ways to make the city more liveable in the design of new public realm projects and initiatives.

We hope that the range of events will allow people to choose a time that suits them to engage and give their views about the city. The process  supports volunteer groups to assist in transforming Limerick’s streets, parks and riverfront into more engaged public spaces.  By co-ordinating, analysing and representing the views of these communities we aim to develop an inclusive vision for the city.

The first City Engage week begins on Tuesday, 28 February 2017.  All events are free and open to the public.
