THE Limerick City Centre Traders’ Association and the Limerick Vintners association have joined forces to create a musical atmosphere this Easter Saturday in the city centre, celebrating Easter, all that is good about the city and creating a fun experience for both locals and visitors
They also wish to thank their loyal customers for their continued support, wish them a happy Easter, and encourage people to do their Easter shopping and socialising right in the city centre.

The Traders and Vintners in association with Limerick City and County Council aim to bring festive joy to the heart of the city with live music and entertainment on the streets from 11.30am to1.30pm.
Chairperson of Limerick City Centre Traders’ Association and CEO of Limerick & District Credit Union Caroline Long, said, “It will be brilliant to see the street of Limerick alive & buzzing this Easter time. We had a fantastic reaction to the entertainment we had before Christmas, which saw increased footfall and spend and we are delighted to be able to do the same again this Saturday. There will also be a lot of visitors in town on Saturday for the European Cup Rugby Match in Thomond Park so this will really add to their experience of our City”
Paul Flannery chairperson of the Limerick Vintners said “it’s fantastic to be associated with the Limerick City Centre Traders association in bringing entertainment and excitement to the streets of Limerick this Easter Saturday and looking forward to it being the start of many more to come.”
They have engaged with an extensive list of performers such as Downtown Dixieland Jazz Band, Unity Gospel Choir Limerick, The two chords Stephano, Thick as Thieves and many more who will be providing entertainment at various locations throughout the city in the build up to the match
Local butcher, Paul Craughan, said, “there will be great excitement in the city and we look forward to listening to local gospel choir and solo singers right outside our door”
John Doyle from Downtown Dixieland Jazz Band said, “we’ve done lots of gigs, but we get a great kick when we play in the City Centre and the interaction with the audience is always super with people dancing on the streets and really appreciating the live music”
Make sure to make your way to the city centre this Saturday with family & friends and enjoy the music and entertainment presented by the Limerick City Centre Traders & publicans involved. Happy Easter from all of them to you
