PART three of our unique series of six magazines covering the years 1965-1995 in Limerick will be free in the weekend Limerick Leader dated April 28.

Part three covers arguably the most eventful news years in the Limerick Leader’s 123-year history and is a must-read for anyone interested in the city or county!

It would also make an ideal educational tool for schoolchildren interested in learning about local history in Limerick, as described in the paper of record.

Among the many highlights are fascinating coverage of the 1975 kidnapping of Ferenka boss Dr Tiede Herrema, Munster’s legendary defeat of the All Blacks at Thomond Park in 1978 and the momentous visit of Pope John Paul II to Limerick the following year.

The magazine also includes many wonderful and rare photographs of the era and advertisements taken from the Leader’s pages.
