Re: Re: Limerick City Boundary Extension
The Clare GAA jersey is a good point in question.
Firstly we are talking about a Limerick City Boundary extension into County Limerick and County Clare. Not a County Limerick move into County Clare!
The dilemma facing what were once idyllic country villages (e.g. Parteen, Annacotty or Mungret) in that they have now become engulfed by the growth of the city.
Their local GAA clubs seem to have an important social function in that it preserves their â€œlocal identityâ€ in the face of enormous changes around them.
In fairness to the Parteen GAA club, they offer the â€œcity kidsâ€ of Westbury / Shannon Banks a great sporting facility and so what if they only hurl in the Clare leagues. In my opinion here lies the way forward, one city with a Clare side and a Limerick side.
I personally have numerous relatives living on the Clare side of the city and have always used the following postal address to write to them.
Griff, you may be joking by talking about removing Athlunkard bridge. However contentious issues need to be bridged by constructive discussion.
