In the vibrant city of Limerick, recent events offer enriching experiences for its residents, ranging from educational lectures to sports competitions and charity concerts. The engaging talks on various subjects, including the comparison of exhibitions in Cork and Dusseldorf, as well as the theme of “Home,” reflect the city’s cultural interest. Meanwhile, athletic events such as football matches and the Limerick Races showcase the community’s passion for sports. Furthermore, charity events demonstrate the residents’ commitment to supporting worthy causes and giving back to those in need. These delightful and diverse happenings in Limerick highlight the city’s thriving spirit and continued growth.
An interesting lecture comparing and contrasting exhibitions held in Cork and Dusseldorf this year took place last Friday night. Father P.F. Dowling, C.M., presented this thought-provoking talk under the presidency of his Lordship the Bishop at the Catholic Institute.
At the Sacred Heart Church, Rev. R. Kane, S.J., delivered the final lecture of the “Home” series on “The Cradle and the Grave.” The powerful sermon emphasized the duties of parents to children and children to parents, and served as a plea for real affection within families, particularly during the festive season.
At the Mungret College, the newly issued “Mungret Annual” is looking remarkable with excellent letterpress and fascinating illustrations. A departure from their previous editions, Gaelic pages and a song set to music are also included, signifying a progression in its content.
A charity concert organized by the Mechanics’ Institute Committee will take place on January 8th and 9th to support St. Vincent de District Nursing Association. Many talented performers, both local and from Cork, will be featured.
The traditional “wren boys” celebration in Limerick seems to have fallen from grace, with fewer house-to-house visits being made for the occasion.
The recent football match between the London Irish and Garryowen sees both teams putting on impressive displays. With earnestness and constant practice, Garryowen may clinch the Munster Cup.
Lastly, Limerick Races at Greenpark were a delight, attracting large crowds and providing a day of enjoyable sport for all attendees. This holiday event has now established itself as a popular attraction in southern Ireland.
