From Limerick’s hard working Arts Officer, Sheila Deegan, “Don’t let the opportunity pass you by to hear music, watch a movie, listen to poetry and prose or just dance. I am calling on everyone to use the hashtag #weareculture to showcase what we have to offer,” she added.

Explore our world of walks on medieval walls, talks, poetry performances, jazz, music gigs; a classic and vintage car show at The Hunt Museum – and opera recitals, trad performance; church recitals, video and film and street comedy and busking.

Exhibition centres will be open to excite interest in their visual arts and some will roll out craft and art-making demonstrations.
