We asked some friends to share their favourite Limerick artists to create a Limerick playlist for the whole family to enjoy.

The playlist plays homage to a host of local musicians from Limerick’s vibrant and diverse music scene, whose creative talents helped keep people’s spirits high throughout COVID enforced lockdowns.
It is hoped the compilation will help shine a light on some of Limerick’s celebrated bands and musicians after what has been a very difficult two years in the entertainment industry.
The playlist is a celebration of the diversity of musical genres in Limerick, featuring a mix of styles from Irish folk to Indie-rock, dark-pop to hip-hop.
Limerick families near and far are invited to tune in and enjoy the playlist ahead of the St. Patrick’s Festival celebrations and show some love to our local talents.
Members of the public will shortly be invited to nominate their favourite Limerick bands and tracks via Limerick St. Patrick’s Festival Instagram and the most popular selection will be added to the final playlist.
The Limerick St Patricks Festival playlist is the first in a new ‘Sounds of Limerick’ series launched by the Council.
A special Digital Guide has been created outlining the events taking place in the Limerick St Patrick’s Festival. It is available on Limerick.ie.
