Re: Re: Open House At Limerick . . .
I was gutted once again to miss out on an Open House experience and I also really wanted to explore Limerick (a city I know so little about).
I wouldnt be too down about this first event. Its probably worth saying that this is just the start for Limerick and that the event was all but voluntarily organised. I think that the team put great effort into the event. Here in Dublin we might be a little more expecting of events like Culture Night and OHD but its fair to say they are running 6 years now. They have learned all the pitfalls and thats why these events run like clockwork. However even here events overlap or fall on different days and you never get to see everything you want….its what makes next year so much more exciting!
I really notice a seachange in thinking about Limerick. There is certainly a big social media buzz about the city. With the new unified authority and a big push to regenerate the centre, we will hopefully start seeing a city that is proud of its heritage emerge.
Lots to do of course… but as a speaker at an event said today: in a time of no developers, be your own developer.
