Survey on need for community centre in Limerick city suburbs

Community Sector Consultant Paul O'Raw

LIMERICK City and County Council has commissioned a survey to determine the need for a new community centre in the Raheen/Dooradoyle/Mungret area.

Community consultant Paul O’Raw has been commissioned to consider the need for a multi-purpose community centre after the need for a feasibility study was identified by the Municipal Area Councillors.

The area has seen considerable population growth in recent years and is expected to increase further under the Limerick Development Plan and Project 2040.

The views of the local community are critical to the process and all households will have an opportunity to have their say.

The rationale for this study arises from the need to anticipate and cater for significant, planned population growth in this catchment area and to provide for the requisite community, social and recreation infrastructure.

Mayor Daniel Butler said it was hugely important to get the views of the thousands of families, groups, businesses and organisations, who either live or are active in the Raheen/ Dooradoyle/Mungret area.

“Strong and vibrant communities are central to what makes Limerick unique. We all want to live in an area that is friendly and has the proper social and community infrastructure, therefore it’s extremely important that you make your views known.”

The consultation process for community groups and the general public is now underway and can be accessed through these links:


Closing date for completing the survey is Thursday, March 31.
