I read recently that Limerick Boat club is to close. The building is to be knocked to make way for another Apartment Block. Is no old building in Limerick safe anymore.
This is such a beautiful area what a shame to have another glass block of a building in the way

From City Council
The premises you mention is a protected structure in the Limerick City Development Plan. Limerick City Council have received no proposal, formal or otherwise, for the development of the site.
City revamp on way
Cllr Oâ€™Hanlon urged a rethink on the quays and the potential they present to develop the cityâ€™s riverscape into a “beautiful city landmark area.â€ He said it is his understanding that a new City Library to replace the existing building on Michael Street will be built on Poor Manâ€™s Kilkee, but this could not be confirmed at time of gong to press as city librarian, Dolores Doyle, was not available for comment.
Limerick Boat Club / Poor Manâ€™s Kilkee
The rumour mill rumbles on! If given the option of a new library on â€œPoor Manâ€™s Kilkeeâ€ or sitting blissfully illiterate on a bench there enjoying what ever the river Shannon has to offer, I would chose the latter every time!
Would the nearby closed Franciscan Church on Lower Henry / Bedford Row not be an ideal re-location for the City library?
