This project has completed a study to catalogue Limerick’s heritage along the River Shannon, and is now in the process of developing conservation and management plans to not only protect the most at-risk sites, but to bring value to them as tourism assets.
The MMIAH Atlantic Area Interreg project provides Limerick with an extra €274,000 to recover and add value to our maritime, military and industrial heritage.
A prime example is the Grand Hotel at Lock Quay, which is currently in need of conservation and beautification to improve, not only the structure, but the general environment of that part of the city. Through the MMIAH project we are working with Waterways Ireland to bring about this improvement.
The MMIAH project also has an exciting long term view to creating a joint tourism product - Limerick as part of an Atlantic Coastal route, from Southern Spain to Northern Scotland.
