LIMERICK is once again in the picture with a charity calendar showing off some of the city’s most picturesque scenes.

The Limerick and District Photographic Society has released a calendar showcasing some of the best pictures its members have taken across the year.

The 2015 calendar - which is being sold at Gleeson’s Spar in Catherine Street, Harvey Norman and the Georgian Villas petrol station - includes a picture of the devastating flooding in Athlunkard Street, a sunset at Plassey, and a close-up of the Giant Grandmother.

Society members were asked to select three images each, with the best 12 reproduced for the calendar, priced at €7.

For the second year in a row, the Corbett Suicide Prevention Patrol (CSPP) will benefit from the sales.

CSPP patrols the banks of the River Shannon on a regular basis, talking to people who may be considering taking their own lives.

Secretary John Grimes said the calendar offers the chance for Limerick to portray to exiles how their city now appears.

The society meets every other Wednesday in the Castletroy Park Hotel. It aims to give keen photographers a chance to showcase their work. New members are always welcome. Contact John at 087-6722478.
