Limerick GAA and Limerick City and County Council have announced enhanced efforts to improve litter and waste management in the vicinity of LIT Gaelic Grounds.
“The objective of the exercise is to encourage patrons attending next Sunday’s game to bring their litter and waste home,” said Paul Foley, Chairman of LIT Gaelic Grounds.

“We are delighted with the response and support of local businesses like the Woodfield, the Ardhu and the Council and especially Limerick City Tidy Towns, led by Helen O Donnell who had volunteers out cleaning the Ennis Road at the last game” he added.

Environment Awareness Officer with Limerick City and County Council, Sinead McDonnell said that “the Council are delighted to partner and support this enhanced effort especially when probably over 30,000 people will attend the games in Limerick next Sunday”

The enhanced initiative will have an increased number of volunteers out cleaning with additional bins provided on the access routes to LIT Gaelic Grounds along with the Council and local businesses providing extra bins and cleaners also.

Limerick GAA requests supporters to bring home your litter, as no matter how many extra bins are provided, inevitably some will fill very quickly as the crowd converges towards the stadium.

Limerick GAA proudly supports the ethos of Team Limerick Clean Up and partnering with community and business to achieve a cleaner environment is a common objective.
