LIMERICK GAA is getting their house in order at the LIT Gaelic Grounds ahead of this Sunday’s Munster Hurling Finals.

LIT Gaelic Grounds have partnered with Limerick City Centre Tidy Towns and Limerick City Council to enhance litter management in the vicinity of the stadium at the weekend.

“We have worked very hard over the past few years to improve the stadium not least the rebranding and partnership with LIT,” said County Board Chairman John Cregan.

“We’re asking supporters not to litter in the vicinity of the stadium and to bring their litter home and dispose of it responsibly. Limerick GAA are active and proud participants in Team Limerick Clean Up and we aim to continue to uphold that ethos at the biggest event of the year at LIT Gaelic Grounds.”

Extra volunteers and additional bins will be provided on the pedestrian access routes to the stadium. Local businesses will also provide additional bins and clean up volunteers including the Ardhu Bar, Woodfield House Hotel, Na Piarsaigh Fanzone, Supermacs, and Rodahan`s Centra.  

The outer railings and gates of the stadium are currently being repainted and Limerick GAA have partnered with Limerick City Tidy Towns, who provided hanging baskets for the Ennis Road side of the stadium.

Limerick City and County Council are also providing extra bins on the approach routes to the stadium.

Welcoming the initiative, Limerick City Tidy Towns chairperson Helen O’Donnell said it was a great opportunity to articulate the Team Limerick Clean Up message.

“We are delighted to see Limerick GAA maintain environmental awareness high on their agenda,”  she added.

Limerick GAA also confirmed that underneath the Mackey Stand they will display the Team Limerick Clean Up initials TLC as a gesture of their commitment to the community participation and ethos of the project.
