WATCH: Christmas in Limerick captured in stunning fashion from the skies

Alan Owens


THE festive season in Limerick has been captured in stunning aerial footage that can be seen in a new video online.

Limerick Christmas 2017, produced by local company Long Range Media, displays stunning vistas of the city-scape this December.

Jimmy Long from Long Range Media was in touch with the Limerick Leader about the video, which shot over the last two weekends in Limerick.

A fully licensed commercial drone pilot, Mr Long received the required clearance from the IAA and gardai prior to flying and filming in the city centre.

He says: "I shot it to showcase Christmas 2017 in Limerick and the great atmosphere that is around this year."

The Leader previously featured Jimmy and Long Range Media after he recorded dramatic fire footage at Clear Circle recycling, Ballysimon and DGD Shredding, Raheen earlier this year on cameras which were mounted on a hi-tech drone.

The qualified carpenter, who is from St Patrick’s Road, is a fully licenced drone operator, registered with the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA).
