Limerick councillors agree to fund installation of Christmas crib

A crib is to be installed in Limerick City and County Council's Rathkeale offices

Councillors in the Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District have agree to pay for the installation of a traditional Christmas crib from their discretionary funds.

At the October meeting, Cllr Kevin Sheahan proposed that a crib be sourced and put in the reception are of the local authority's Rathkeale offices.

Last week, at the November meeting, a council official confirmed figurines for the crib had been sourced and that they will cost around €1,800. The other materials will cost in the the region of €200.

It was unanimously agreed that the cost will be divided between the six members through the GMA system - a discretionary fund which councillors have control over.

Council staff will erect and install the crib nearer Christmas.
