Christmas in Limerick gets underway!

The Christmas in Limerick season has officially begun this weekend with the Christmas lights in Limerick city centre being turned on. The traditional switching on ceremony was unable to take place, but through the sprinkling of some festive magic, Mayor Daniel Butler had some help from local sporting heroes, Olympic hockey player Roisin Upton and hurling legend Cian Lynch to ‘lift the lights’ magically leading to all the Limerick city centre lights shining brightly.

To help get Limerick ready for the season, Limerick City and County Council has launched Limerick.ie/Christmas which highlights all things Christmas in Limerick over the festive period.
