A NEW series of live shows for Limerick City was announced this Tuesday morning.

‘Limrock Live’ will take place at Limerick Milk Market every Friday night from August 3 to welcome live audiences back to the popular venue as Covid-19 restrictions are gradually lifted.

The series will feature The O’Malley’s, Emma Langford, The Alvin Purple Experience, Anna’s Anchor and Toucan.

Organised by Limerick City and County Council in association with Dolans Presents, the concerts are an opportunity for audiences to come together and celebrate the diverse range of music in the city.

Limrock Live is funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media through the Local Live Performance Programming scheme.

Mayor of the city and county of Limerick, Cllr Daniel Butler said; “We’ve all been craving live music during the pandemic and missing the simple pleasure of going to an outdoor gig with our friends and family. I warmly welcome the fact that local artists are being supported through this Local Live Performance programming scheme and that the Council is collaborating with the superb team at Dolans Presents to make this summer event happen- I’m really looking forward to it.”

Speaking at today’s announcement, Neil Dolan of Dolans Presents said: “We are delighted to partner with Limerick City and County Council to deliver this great idea to Limerick audiences.
The past 18 months has been a difficult one for both performers and audiences alike. The ‘Limrock Live’ series will be an opportunity for all of us to celebrate coming together once again to celebrate live music”.

“The Limerick music scene has consistently been delivering great things for many years. We thank the council for developing this idea to showcase local acts and to celebrate the musical talent this city has”, he added.
