Sunday 17th is turning out….

To be quite the busy day.

First off there’s the Childline Family Fun Day in the Milk Market from 12pm – 3pm (details of which are in a previous post).

Then there’s our WWKIP Limerick Event from 2pm – 5pm.

I’ve also come across this.

The following is cut and pasted from the link above:

In association with Dulux Paints, Limerick Tidy Towns have been working with local retailers and businesses to develop an agreed colour scheme for participating buildings in Limerick City.

16 building owners/retailers have come on board and this Sunday 17th June has been chosen as the date to commence work on what proves to be a very exciting project for our city. We have confirmation of supply of hoists, paint has arrived and a team is being put in place to ensure the success of the project.

We need as many painters, preferably with licences to use hoists, to come on board this Sunday. The project, which is being called ‘Give a Day for Limerick’, is an opportunity for us all to get involved and make a tangible difference to the overall look of our city centre. Recent paint projects in Limerick have already proved that facelift to a building can make a real difference to the look, feel and atmosphere within the city.

This project has been co-ordinated by the Limerick Tidy Towns committee under the guidance of Limerick-based colour consultant Cora Collins. Cora’s has worked in on similar projects Moneygall and Clonakilty and has brought her understanding of colour scheming to her native city, creating an agreed palette with retails and building owners.

Helen O’Donnell of the Limerick Tidy Towns committee said, “This project will really enhance the impact of our Georgian cityscape. The attention to detail that Cora has given to the project and the real sense of pride from those involved is proof that change for the better is possible in our city.

If we can get as many people with skills in painting and decorating into the city on Sunday next we have a real opportunity to make that change happen”.

A site meeting is due to take place this Friday, 15th June at 6.30pm and an 8am start is planned for the project on Sunday. Anyone wishing to get involved can contact us here in the Local Heroes hub on 061 260404 or by emailing

It’s sure going to be a busy and productive day!

Oh, and on top of all that it’s Father’s Day too!
