Limerick City Tidy Towns’ Monthly Award for March 2019 goes to Midwest Lighting’s new showroom on the Dock Road

Maura O’Neill, of Limerick City Tidy Towns, said “This winner was a pretty easy one for us to choose as I drive past it every evening on my home from work and couldn’t help but notice how great it looks, and what an impact it has had on this part of the Dock Road.  The new windows and exterior signage combined with the beautiful interior designed by local designer Tullio Orlandi has transformed this previously empty unit.

As you would expect, the lighting is particularly striking and welcoming, which is of great benefit to this part of Limerick on one of the busiest access and exit routes to the city. The fact that Midwest Lighting also has an entire section devoted to low-energy lighting, which offers suggestions for suitable low energy equivalents along with an energy audit program, is also very much in keeping with the Tidy Towns ethos.” 



Midwest Lighting is an Irish owned operation that has been serving the Mid-West for over 20 years. They were previously based at Steamboat Quay where they welcomed thousands of happy customers over the period of a decade, before moving to their new showroom in early 2019.

While the showroom is easily accessible to all customers, for added convenience they also run an extensive online shopping experience via their website  They stock everything from the very latest in eco-friendly, low energy lighting through to the very latest lighting fashion statements for homes or businesses. 

For more information, visit their website, give them a call on 061 319118 or simply drop into their beautiful new showroom.  

 Midwest Lighting is Limerick City Tidy Towns’ third winner for 2019, following Mint Boutique in January and Bakehouse 22 in February, and all three will be in with the chance of winning this year’s overall prize at their annual event to be held early in 2020.   The overall winner for 2018 was awarded to The Life Centre, Home of Abundant Life Church at the annual Limerick Tidy Towns 2019 event recently held at No 1 Pery Square Hotel.

If you wish to volunteer with Limerick City Tidy Towns they meet every Sunday morning at 11 am at the corner of Thomas Street and O’Connell Street, and on Wednesday evenings at 6 pm outside the White House during summer months.
