The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick is calling on businesses and individuals to ‘go green’ this weekend in support of the senior and minor hurlers competing in the All-Ireland series this weekend.
Mayor Michael Sheahan said: “Limerick supporters have reason to ‘go green’ on the double on Saturday (27 July) as the Limerick hurling teams take to the pitch in Croke Park for the All-Ireland semi-finals.
“It is such a fantastic honour to be seeing the green of Limerick represented at the highest level in the senior and minor grades.
“The excitement is building across the city and county and I have instructed the Council to turn the lights green at Council Headquarters, Merchant’s Quay, to support the hurlers.
“I’ve also asked for the green and white of Limerick to fly proudly on our city centre on Patrick Street and O’Connell Street, as the excitement builds for Saturday.
“I am also calling on business organisations, companies, shop owners, and members of the public to get behind the teams and ‘Go Green’.
“I would also hope that owners of buildings that have night-time spotlights can turn them green, where possible, to show their support for the hurlers.
“Of course I’m not forgetting the camogie players, who will be competing in the All-Ireland quarter-final next weekend (3 Aug) in Semple Stadium, and know everyone is behind them too.
“We are all immensely proud of all the players and their achievements and they can be sure that Limerick is 100 per cent behind them.”
