Battle to get underway to crown Limerick’s All Time Great

All Time Great: Who will it be? You decide!

THE search to find Limerick’s All Time Great will kick off in earnest next week.

Since its launch a few weeks ago, the search to find Limerick’s greatest person has been generating great discussion with suggestions coming in from near and far.

Now the nominations are in and the shortlisting is underway as the Limerick Leader prepares to find out who readers believe is Limerick’s All Time Great.

“We have certainly cast the net very wide,” Eugene Phelan, Limerick Leader editor said.

“There are generations of people who have contributed greatly to local life in this county and this recognises their work. We have also received a few controversial nominations so it will be really interesting to see how people react to that!”

The search drew people from all sections of the community: business, charity, sport, entertainment, politics and historical and details of the final 16 will appear on Limerickleader.ie and in print next week.

Once we have unveiled the final shortlist, we will launch a series of polls pitting our nominees head-to-head at quarter-final, semi-final and eventually, final stage over the coming weeks.

Who has made the shortlist and who will be the winner? All will be revealed as the competitions heats up.

Tune in to find out and it is up to you, the reader, to decide who is worthy of the prestigious accolade of Limerick’s All Time Great.
