Limerick Youth Services Annual Youth Factor 2017

Young people from across Limerick will gather at the University Concert Hall on Friday, January 27th for Limerick Youth Services Annual Youth Factor.  

One of the most popular events in the calendar, the Youth Factor will see young people participate in the following categories: Dance, Song, Music, and Performance. Dance, song, and music will also include a solo and group section. 


This year will also see a special banner competition with youth clubs/groups encouraged to design a banner to cheer on their team. 

The winners from each category will represent Limerick at Youth Work Ireland’s National Finals which will be held in the summer of 2017 in Limerick! 

In the past, Limerick Youth Service has enjoyed great success at the National Finals with Newcastlewest’s Bryan Mortell winning the dance category in 2015.
