LImerick people are being encouraged to show pride in the city and county by wearing a special lapel pin which was launched this week by rugby star Paul O’Connell.

The lapel pin, which was designed by 11-year-old Anna Kinsella from Rhebogue, has been produced and distributed as part of the Limerick Going for Gold campaign.

It is available for free from a number of locations across Limerick, including the Leader office.

At the launch outside the Hunt Museum, Paul said he hopes the people of Limerick will embrace the concept and show pride in the city and county.

“The pin is a symbol that you are a supporter of Limerick city and county and when I say supporter I do not mean one that sits on the sidelines. If you are wearing the pin you have signed up to be an activist in support of Limerick city and county,” he said.
