At the recent National Ploughing Championships it was great to see Limerick being showcased as the National City of Culture 2014.

Eoghan Prendergast, manager of Limerick Marketing Company was telling us that he was thrilled with the response and the positivity he received from the thousands of attendees.

I personally cannot wait for 2014 as from what I can gather there will a huge amount of events happening throughout the city.

It will be great to showcase the city and capture the essence of what we can offer and promote Limerick and the region to the best possible light.

Chat to you all next week.
