The TLC initiative is sponsored by the JP McManus Benevolent Fund and is spearheaded by Paul O’Connell and Limerick City and County Council and partnered by Mr. Binman, Limerick’s Live 95FM, and The Limerick Leader.

Every Good Friday, TLC organises an event to clean up Limerick and encourage volunteers of all ages and get involved.
Since its inception, there have been over 23,000 volunteers taking part in the initiative, instilling a sense of civic spirit and pride of place.
