The Limerick Spring Festival of Politics and Ideas is a Made in Limerick project and it will run from 17 – 19 of April, 2015. Limerick Spring held their first festival in 2014 and was the first festival of politics held in Limerick. The festival hosted a range of activities from debate, film, protest music, food and creative discussion.
After its great success last year, Limerick Spring Festival hopes to keep the ball rolling for this year’s festival. They will be holding a Table Quiz, their first fundraiser event of the year on the 18 of February in Dolans warehouse.
The festival is in the midst of planning and Limerick Spring need all the support that they can get so they can ensure another successful festival this year, so come show your support on the 18 of February for their Table Quiz.
Over 20 volunteers were involved with last year’s festival to help make it happen. The Limerick Spring organisers estimated that over 1000 hours of volunteering went into the festival. They hope to receive the same support this year and hope that the citizens of Limerick will come and support the Limerick Springs Festival this year.
Festival Coordinator Jennifer Moroney-Ward says “Limerick has a long tradition of political activism and has played a leading role in the development of the Irish state. However, many citizens feel disconnected from politics. This 5 day festival will invite citizens and guest speakers to delve deeper into the political structures and systems that influence our lives in 2015.”
