Limerick City and County Council continues to provide essential services to the people of Limerick despite public offices being closed
Limerick City and County Council wishes to inform citizens that all its public offices are closed until further notice, following direction from the government. This is to help in the prevention of the spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus.
However, a number of Limerick essential services have to be curtailed due to social/ physical distancing and other guidance from the government and health experts.
The Limerick essential services include:
All our Civic Amenity sites in Kilmallock, Mungret and Newcastle West remain open to the public, operating their normal opening hours. Again, please practice social/ physical distancing.
Burials in Council-operated cemeteries are continuing as normal, however, strict physical distancing precautions are in place around open plots and access during burial is restricted.
Limerick Covid-19 Community Response continues to operate with volunteers around the city and county to help ensure that elderly and/ or vulnerable members of our community can access deliveries of groceries, medicine, and fuels and can avail of social care supports if needed.
The Limerick Covid-19 Community Response helpline number is 1800 832 005.
All of these measures are being put in place to ensure that essential services are provided and that we are helping to minimise the spread of Covid-19.
Limerick City and County Council will continue to work for the people of Limerick during this crisis period, while also supporting the HSE in its work.
Staff from the Council are continuing to work to provide essential services to the people of Limerick during this time. They can be contacted:
