The Longest Day

The Longest Day - Friday, June 21 - saw Limerick Leader readers sending us in some video clips to their favourite local paper depicting different local sights and scenes, all captured on the day after we asked you to use your phones and get filming!

We’ve put some of them together into a video sequence, which begins with a great concert at UCH earlier in the day. The locally based Irish Chamber Orchestra enlisted some brilliant young performers for its Sing Out With Strings programme and told them, simply: Express Yourself!

The day dawned bright and sunny in Limerick but typically the rain refused to stay away and as the Longest Day moved into evening, it was pouring down in Limerick. Thankfully, some of our video contributors captured some nice scenes when the weather was still decent!

We’ll be introducing more video on in the coming weeks and months and if you have a clip that you think deserves a wider audience, please send it to us by emailing

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of The Longest Day!
