Limerick Islamic Culture Exhibition 2019 set to build bridges between cultures
Limerick Islamic Cultural Exhibition will take place on Saturday, October 19 from 12-5 pm at Pery’s Hotel, Glenworth Street Limerick.
The free exhibition is open to the public and includes calligraphy, artifacts, henna tattoos, face-painting and traditional artworks.
The aim of this event is to clear up misconceptions of Muslims fueled by the media and integrate them into our culture and Limerick.
This event will offer an opportunity to meet, share, discuss and experience the principles and culture of Irish Muslims.
There will also be short discussion forums where members of the public will be able to discuss and ask questions about Islam and Muslims.
Last year’s Limerick Islamic Culture Exhibition was met with great success.
