The playlist plays homage to a host of local musicians from Limerick’s vibrant and diverse music scene, whose creative talents helped keep people’s spirits high throughout COVID enforced lockdowns.
A celebration of the diversity of musical genres in Limerick, this playlist features a mix of styles from Irish folk to Indie-rock, dark-pop to hip-hop.
Limerick families near and far are invited to tune in and enjoy the playlist ahead of the St. Patrick’s Festival celebrations and show some love to our local talents.
