In celebration of Limerick’s unique food heritage, the Pigtown Culture and Food Series is back for its third year. Inspired by the history of Limerick’s famous bacon industry, an exciting programme of themed events will take place in various venues in Limerick throughout the month of September. 

Developed by the Limerick Food Group and supported by Limerick City and County Council, the series celebrates Limerick’s unique heritage as a way to showcase the great food and drink available locally, building on our deep-rooted food heritage.
