I SEE bus drivers got what they want after taking industrial action because they have union reps - a mouthpiece to speak for them.
Dee Maguire of Limerick Masters Swimming Club is correct in claiming that the water in the Shannon through Limerick is the cleanest in the country as preparations advance for his club’s forthcoming and prestigious annual Thomond Swim. Sadly, it was not always so.
Over eight months ago at a funeral in Newcastle West I was discussing abortion with local Fine Gael TD Patrick O’Donovan. He said he was staunchly pro-life; even as much as the Fine Gael TD for Wicklow, Simon Harris, who said he would have no problem leaving the party if it came down to a vote in the Dail.
IN the first week of June I will celebrate my 40th birthday and I hope to receive as a present (hint hint to any family members reading this) a front page of the Limerick Leader from that same week I was born. I am told by my father than I witnessed Limerick’s famous All-Ireland hurling win as a three-month baby dressed in green, sitting on his lap in front of our new colour television, hired from RTV Rentals in O’Connell Street, Limerick city. Little did I know (or my father, come to that) I would still be waiting to see another All-Ireland win 40 years later.
FIFTY years ago, in January 1963, schools throughout Limerick remained closed due to heavy snowfalls. On Monday, January 28, the pupils of Broadford Boys & Girls primary schools returned to school and on the following Thursday they vacated the schools built in 1870 and walked the short distance to the new primary school.
I write to express my appreciation to the organisers of the recently held Barringtons Hospital Great Limerick Run. I travelled to Limerick for the first time with a group of colleagues from Co Offaly, each of us doing various races. We have taken part in many marathon and running events over the years both at home and abroad and without question this event is up there with the best.
