Limerick… City of Culture 

I’ve been in Limerick now for about four days. I’ve walked about the Medieval Quarter along with St. Mary’s Cathedral , visited the art museums and have found it to be a lovely city. People here have talked about the grittyness and gang problems of its past… But the city is reinventing itself with a vibrant arts community and a try for a European city city of culture distinction. I see it Working .

Last night we took in a trio of short plays at The Locke Bar presented by the Torch players and Octopus Soup theatre group. I enjoyed the local theatre and enjo hearing the Irish accent in any situation.

As I write, I am in the Hunt Museum… A private collection of art from antiquity to today. And there’s some sketches fromGauguin  and Picasso, too. 

Here’s a few pictures of Harold’s adventures in Limerick.
