Shop Local this Christmas
After a tough year for many shops across the city and county, it is more important than ever to get behind our local businesses. Why not make an extra effort to support our home-grown stores and shop local this year?
If we all do our bit, we’ll have the best chance possible of protecting the local economy - and supporting one another this Christmas.
Happy shopping, and Happy Christmas! #ChristmasinLimerick

Limerick City centre on-street parking from €1 an hour is one of the cheapest in the country with 3,500 spaces available. Limerick City and County Council is also providing additional free car parking spaces in the city centre in the run up to Christmas. As part of a series of initiatives to entice more people to shop and visit the City Centre over the festive period, free car parking spaces become operational from 5th December.
