good news indeed! The shannon bridge really needs a spruce up. Its the same since the days it was known as the whistling bridge.
Also, Dunnes on Sarsfield bridge are closing their grocery section downstairs and the future for the home depot looks uncertain according to the Post. Hopefully the first steps in the removal of this ugly ugly building. With the Henry St branch around the corner it was never going to last too long..

Dunnes to close grocery section

By John O’Shaughnessy

STORM clouds are looming at Dunnes Stores in Sarsfield Street, where staff have been told the supermarket division is to cease operating from next month.

A spokesperson for Mandate, who represent the workers, told the Limerick Post that closure came as a surprise.

“We understand that Dunnes are retaining the first floor for the moment but long term plans are uncertain.

“There are upwards of 30 employed in the supermarket and they have been given the option of transferring to other Dunnes Stores in the area.

“Some of the workers we represent have been with Dunnes for 36 years and it will not be easy for them to transfer. They are not at all happy with the situation and we are now trying to negotiate terms and conditions for them with the management.

“The employment structure in other outlets is not exactly what they are accustomed to – it is a matter of fitting in”.

Mandate are hopeful of a successful conclusion to negotiations.

Dunnes, situated alongside Sarsfield Bridge, is a very valuable property and there were suggestions in the past that a hotel was planned for the site.

The Sarsfield Store was given a revamp a couple of years ago, shortly after Dunnes opened their Henry Street premises.

Roll on those dark clouds and put an end to this crap! 😀 And it’s about fucking time too!

Glad to see that they’re starting a complete upgrade on Clancy Strand and O’Callaghan Strand very soon. Any news when they’re going to start on O’Connell Street?
