“Limerick County Borough Council Adopts Museums and Gymnasium Act of 1891”

In a special statutory meeting held on November 20th, 1902, the County Borough Council of Limerick unanimously adopted the Museums and Gymnasiums Act of 1891, insofar as it relates to museums only. The council has directed that this resolution be published and notices thereof be given and affixed as required by Section 3, Subsections 3 and 4 of the Act.

This move by the council is likely to promote the establishment and maintenance of museums in Limerick. The Act allows for the establishment of museums and other institutions for the purpose of collecting, preserving, and exhibiting specimens of natural history, science, art, and antiquities. It also provides for the creation of a department of science and art to provide educational opportunities in this field.

The adoption of this Act by the County Borough Council highlights their commitment to promoting knowledge and education in Limerick. The resolution will allow for the creation of museums, which will provide a rich cultural and educational experience for the people of Limerick. Overall, this is a positive development for Limerick, and it will be interesting to see how this resolution is implemented in the coming years.
