Limerick City and County Council provides almost 600 public services as well as promoting the interests of local communities across the city and county and the social, economic, environmental, recreational and cultural development of Limerick.  Our Council has enabled a great renaissance and a lot of change in Limerick over the last five years and this campaign is a nice way to tell some of those stories in the best way possible; through the people that work here.”Head of Marketing and Communications at the Council, Laura Ryan said that an upcoming episode will feature the new Treaty City Brewery on Nicholas Street which received funding from Limerick City and County Council for preservation and refurbishment work.“The series will also feature the man responsible for ensuring Limerick is in bloom every summer, Michael Sheehan, the Council’s Parks superintendent. It’s incredible to think that more than 10,000 plants and shrubs are planted every year to add welcome splashes of colour to Limerick’s streets and parks and it’s great to get a glimpse of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.”Our Council, Our Stories also profiles the Bee Friendly Limerick project and engineer Anne Goggin who explains how the local authority delays the start of its annual grass-cutting programme in certain areas in order to help give bees and other pollinators an early food source.The popular Limerick Mobile Library Service is also featured, mobile librarian Dean McDarby describes the initiative which provides for the culture, education, information, learning, recreation and study needs of people of all ages in the county.The series also features Valerie Stundon, the Council’s water safety officer on taking care around our lakes and rivers as the summer season approaches.For more information please visit Limerick.ie/Council-Stories or see Limerick.ie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo and YouTube. #OurCouncilOurStories NewsLocal NewsNew video campaign Our Council, Our Stories launched by Limerick City and County CouncilBy Staff Reporter – June 4, 2019 231 TAGSLimerick City and CountyLimerick City and County Councillocal newsNews Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type! last_img read more

Review of state funded community groups in Gaeltacht ordered

He says the realignment of community groups will cover bodies funded by Údarás na Gaeltachta, Gaeltacht-based CDPs (Community Development Projects), Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta and Comhar na nOileán.Consultation with the existing state-funded groups will take place early in the New Year, prior to any change being implemented. This will worry a number of groups, particularly as 29 CDPs have already had their funding cut by Minister O’Cuiv’s department this week, with “duplication” given as the rationale.However, Minister O’Cuiv says he believes that realigning organisations will provide coherent community structures in the Gaeltacht, and ensure that all areas are properly covered.
