Cruinniu na Casca is a new national day of culture and creativity, which will take place nationwide on Easter Monday. How would you like to work off the chocolate from Easter by exploring some of Limerick’s rich heritage and beautiful countryside? Whether you are interested in history and heritage, Irish mythology, nature, self-discovery or just want to stretch your legs, we have a walk for you.

Limerick City and County Council invites all our citizens and visitors to explore the history and the landscape of our city and county this Easter Monday (17th April) on a series of free guided walking tours as part of Cruinniu na Casca.

Cruinniu na Casca is part of Creative Ireland, the government’s Legacy Programme for Ireland 2016 – a five-year initiative, from 2017 to 2022, which places creativity at the centre of public policy.  It is a high-level, high-ambition, all-of-government initiative to mainstream creativity in the life of the nation so that individually and collectively, in our personal lives and in our institutions, we can realise our full creative potential.

Cruinniu na Casca is a new national day of culture and creativity, which will take place nationwide on Easter Monday.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr. Kieran O’Hanlon said: “Limerick city and county has a rich cultural heritage encompassing archaeology, built heritage, the natural environment and community.  With ‘Walking Limerick’ we invite citizens and visitors to celebrate a sense of place and belonging and discover the richness around us.  This new national day of celebration allows us to get together and celebrate us – Luimneach ag Súil.”

Minister for Arts Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Heather Humphreys added: “Creative Ireland is all about putting culture and creativity at the heart of communities nationwide and Cruinniu na Casca will do just that this Easter Monday.  We want to encourage everyone to become involved in the cultural life of Limerick and to participate and enjoy this national day of creativity.”
