Due to high demand, Alter Ego Nightclub is back and better than ever, getting ready for its first major event since November, happening this St Patrick’s Day.

There is huge excitement surrounding the event, as the Covid-19 pandemic finally comes to an end.

Alter Ego Nightclub, which runs at The Kasbah, Dolans, closed at the end of November 2021 when government guidelines stiffened to tackle Covid-19 in the run-up to Christmas. 

Speaking about the reopening of the nightclub on St Patrick’s Day, organiser Lisa Daly told I Love Limerick, “The night will be filled with amazing drag performances, games and a show hosted by Carrie Déway, featuring Elle Uminati and Lexxi Rose. 

“You don’t want to miss any of it. Olivia Chau will also keep the floor lively as the after-show DJ! All proceeds from the event will go directly to the 2022 Limerick Pride Festival.”

The Limerick Pride Festival will take place from Monday, July 4 to Sunday, July 10, with the Pride Parade taking place on Saturday, July 9. 

International drag queen, RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni and Celebrity Big Brother UK winner, Courtney Act, will headline the Climax Party in Dolans on the evening of the Limerick Pride Parade. 

Early bird online tickets for Alter Ego are now on sale at a cost of €10 via Eventbrite, with door entry on the night costing €15. 

Doors open at 9 pm, with the show kicking off at 9:30 pm. The event is strictly over 18’s and ID is required on the door.
