Limerick Civic Trust plans future projects for Limerick City.

The newly appointed chairperson of Limerick Civic Trust, Brian McLoughlin recently expressed his interest in more projects being established throughout the city in order to improve the heritage environment in the city for both citizens and tourists.

To date, 50 new projects have been planned by The Limerick Civic Trust. Limerick Civic Trust plans future projects for Limerick City.

This decision comes in light of Limericks European City of Culture 2020 bid and will benefit it immensely in its prospect of winning.

A fundraising event to climb Mount Brandon, County Kerry is set to take place September 3. All are encouraged to participate in this event. The aim of the fundraiser is to gain much needed funds for Limerick Civic Trust and their upcoming future projects.

Major plans for the city have already been proposed such as the Limerick Economic and Spatial plan of 2030. This plan will see €250 million euro investment to transform Limerick City centre, its economy, and the way it is marketed as an ideal location for investment over the next 17 years. The plan will see O’Connell Street, Catherine Street and Henry Street completely transformed and a new square established in the heart of the city.

Plans already undergone have included the refurbishment of the River canal bank in Corbally from Clare Street to the Guinness Bridge and weekly “street-a-week” clean-ups in the city centre.

The Limerick Civic Trust has recently been granted a license to develop the Castle Green, a derelict area across the road from King John’s Castle, into a public park. This will be an invaluable investment for Limerick seeing as the King Johns Castle area is one of the most dense tourist areas in the city.
