2019 is the 50th Anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s Moon Landing. It is also the 5th Anniversary of when the hearts and minds of the people of Limerick were captured by Granny as we walked in her footsteps on a journey through Limerick created by the world famous Royal de Luxe.

The concept of One Giant Leap reflects the unprecedented, transformative and dynamic revitalisation that Limerick is undergoing, made possible by ambitious plans, self-belief and a collection of small and giant leaps by communities, organisations and individuals.

In 2019 we are asking the people of Limerick and beyond to celebrate the imagination and ambition, which acts as the catalyst for that One Giant Leap which can make the things of our dreams real and bring us towards a better brighter future. 

So root out those Moon boots, start thinking big and join us for one day as we take to the streets and celebrate One Giant Leap!
