"On behalf of the Board of Limerick National City of Culture 2014, I wish to acknowledge and thank the government for their allocation of €6 million in this year’s budget. This significant announcement paves the way for the animation of Ireland’s first National City of Culture."

"For Limerick, 2014 offers a unique opportunity for the City and County. Not only will Limerick receive its usual funding under Arts Council initiatives but will also benefit from this year’s budget to an extent that finds no parallel in its cultural history to date."

"On November 4, we will launch a vibrant, dynamic, family friendly programme that we hope will capture the imagination of an international, national and local audience. We look forward to Limerick becoming the Stage for Culture in Ireland in 2014."
