UNIVERSITY of Limerick (UL) has taken the decision to close public access to its campus from this morning, Sunday, March 29.

In a memo on the university’s website, a spokesperson said the closure was “in the interest of public health, as we battle the COVID-19 pandemic together”

The closure will see barriers put in place closing all entrance paths and roads and entry will be available “via the main gate only, which will be controlled”.

The statement added, “Access to the campus will only be granted for listed UL personnel carrying out essential business and for village residents.

“We are implementing this measure in line with Government directives and to keep the Limerick community safe during this time of crisis.”

The memo concluded by urging everyone to “stay safe and stay home”.
