An Taisce takes a look at the evolution of Limerick city
WITH the physical appearance of Limerick currently undergoing one of the most exciting makeovers it has ever received and with many new and exciting developments about to unfold in the city, this is an opportune time to take a look at the city’s evolution and its significant role in the historical and geographical development of the country as a whole.
On Wednesday, January 25, An Taisce Limerick will host a discussion in the City Library, the Granary (8pm) on the economic and historical role of the city. All are welcome to attend and speakers will include Liam Irwin, Mary Immaculate College, Dick Tobin, Limerick City Council, Walter Foley and John Morrissey from the University of Limerick.
“As well as showcasing the historical importance of Limerick it is intended to provide fascinating insights into the continued geographical and social evolution of the city and the surrounding catchment areas,” says Daniel Sullivan, chairman of An Taisce Limerick.
“Limerick continues to be a growing city and the pressures, challenges and opportunities that such growth brings will present a need for vision and commitment to ensure the city both prospers and is a good environment for all her citizens,” he adds.
Stressing that An Taisce is committed to facilitating an ongoing community-based discussion about the type of city its citizens want to live in and the nature of development that can be sustained over the longer term, Mr Sullivan adds: “buildings are with us for very long periods and it is vital that they be of a quality that we can be proud of.”An Taisce can be contacted locally email@example.com
