An impression of the proposed youth centre in Ballynanty
COUNCILLORS have postponed the vote on whether to allow Limerick Youth Service to develop in Ballynanty for a month.

COUNCILLORS have postponed the vote on whether to allow Limerick Youth Service to develop in Ballynanty for a month.

At this month’s full council meeting held this Monday night, Mayor Kathleen Leddin proposed the vote be put back by a month so councillors could find out more about the project.

Limerick Youth Service want to build a multi-level youth centre in the shadow of Thomond Park.

As it is on public land, it is up to councillors to approve the project.

Local residents have long opposed the scheme, fearing an increase in anti-social behaviour, a devaluation of their homes, and a loss of amenity. They joined representatives of the Limerick Youth Service in City Hall at this month’s meeting.
