Were it not for the people of Shannon banks, Westbury, Parteen, Clonlara, O'Brien's Bride, Broadford, Cratloe, SMB, Meelick, Shannon the centre of Limerick would look even more desolate.
Limerick city and county councils happily dough-nutted their entrances to the city with awful suburban shopping centres, which now filter out a large percentage of the city's potential custom.
The Clare routes luckily have no such 'malls', as yet and so we continue provide custom for the city.
It is indeed ironic that we should be the people helping to keep Limerick city alive, and yet the same city council wants to subsume us into their control.
I mean, why wouldn't we want to come under the jurisdiction of Limerick city council - they've done such a marvellous job
I dont agree that it's nonsense for a city to look for a boundary change when it's suburbs outgrow the existing boundary. I can't think of any 'awful suburban shopping centres' happily allowed by the city council bar the Parway which hardly filters out much custom as it's only a glorified Dunnes stores..
