Limerick first responders to get temporary base at Cleeves site

Members of the Ennis Road First Responders group.

THE vital work of the Ennis Road First Responders group was highlighted at this month’s Metropolitan District meeting of Limerick City and County Council.

Labour Party councillor Conor Sheehan called on the council and its Limerick Twenty Thirty (LTT) property development subsidiary to provide accommodation for the First Responders group at the former Cleeves toffee factory site.

In response, Kaitlin Roche of LTT said that they were contacted directly by the voluntary group regarding potential space at Cleeves Riverside Quarter.

“LTT are willing to assist in the provision of space for emergency medical equipment and training, on the agreement that it will be vacated when required to commence the main development works on the Cleeves site,” she said.

LTT arranged a meeting last week with the first responders to identify a suitable location within the Cleeves site.
