Multi-million plan for Limerick Boat Club (Limerick Leader)
Interesting proposals for the Limerick Boat and Club house (red brick buildings), just off the Sarsfield Bridge.
Question: Will “Poor Man’s Kilkee” remain an open green space?
Include a museum, coffee shops, tourist information services, facilities for the theatre and the arts.
Question: Will we have two tourist information centres or does this have consequences for Arthur’s Quay????
Question: I presume it also includes a new Club and Boat House?
Question: Is the site large enough for all these activities?
Question: Will Cheebah’s “Roots” be able to return to use the Arts / Theatre facilities? http://cheebah.typepad.com/
A new pedestrian bridge linking the facility to Harvey’s Quay and up onto the newly pedestrianised Bedford Row.
Question: This probably means “Poor Man’s Kilkee“ and Wellesley Pier (Limerick Boat Club) will be bridged?
Question: Will a bridge here not restrict boats entering / leaving the Abbey Weir to the Shannon?
It is not going to be enormous.
Question: Will it complement the bridge?
Question: Will it affect the view of the Shannon Boat Club on the other side?
The architects engaged in the development are led by a former oarsman from Queens University Rowing Club and have a wealth of experience in similar ambitious urban design projects.
Question: Access to Wellesley Pier from Sarsfield Bridge to be maintained?
Question: Will it affect the location of the 1916 Memorial 😉 (Former Fitzgibbon Statue) on the Bridge?
