THE worldwide Covid pandemic failed to prevent a Limerick City Centre community organisation from launching a fully rebranded company with its own bespoke website.
LICP (Limerick Island Community Partners) was formed from the amalgamation of St Mary’s AID CLG and Kings Island Youth and Community Centre and the new company has just launched its new website, www.licp.ie
Acting Manager Pat Kennedy said that LICP’s resilience in serving the community during a pandemic was evident in its determination to provide a full range of support services. These include a meals delivery service, community bus hire, outreach education, estates management, law and mediation service, counselling service, bee-keeping and honey production, bicycle recycling and repairs.
“Unfortunately, our community café was unable to remain open due to Covid 19 Level 5 restrictions but we’re all looking forward to its re-opening in the near future,” he said.
Based in the heart of the city’s Medieval Quarter, LICP collaborated with local artist, Catherine O’Halloran and her team at ‘Draw Out – Urban Exhibitionist’ to create a giant mural on Nicholas Street. Depicting a female form thinking – the feather in her hair represents both strength and fragility at the same time. The mural alone makes the medieval neighbourhood well worth a visit.
“LICP is also delighted that the third year of its baked Limerick Ham Christmas Project is up and running and is now taking orders for Christmas 2020.
“Limerick Island Community Partners continues to promote and facilitate involvement through practical experience in a wide range of social, heritage, recreational and economic projects.
“Our vision is for one voluntary organisation in the Limerick Island Community to improve lives through community enrichment and economic development in a safe, healthy and sustainable physical environment.
LICP’s Community Centre has remained open to the community throughout the pandemic and continues to provide services and venue hire.
