The trial event aims to engage with the public in developing the future of Limerick’s nightlife
By Aislinn Kelly
Five Limerick City businesses are to offer a 30% discount on food to customers this Wednesday, October 26, in conjunction with Limerick City and County Council’s Bloomberg Innovation Training project.
The food discounts will be offered at Coqbull (50 Thomas Street), Habit Coffee+Retail (48 Thomas Street), The Spitjack (6/7 Bedford Row), Sambros (52 Thomas Street) and Gloria Jeans Coffees (58/59 Thomas Street).
The event, taking place between 5pm and 7pm, is the first of its kind in Limerick City, and aims to encourage those who would not normally sample the city’s night-time economy to visit the city centre and see what’s on offer.
As part of the trial event, Limerick City and County Council staff will also be on Thomas Street on Wednesday evening to engage with members of the public. They will be asking those who wish to engage for their opinions on Limerick City’s evening/night-time economy.
The Bloomberg sponsored programme provides Limerick City and County Council staff with consulting, training and networking skills to address key issues facing its residents. Engaging with the public is at the core of Limerick City and County Council’s plans for building towards the future.
“There has been growing ‘on street’ vibrancy in the city in the last few years, and opportunities like this event allow the people of Limerick to build on this,” commented Mayor Francis Foley.
“Engagement with people, face to face, is a key part of life and we look forward to seeing what the feedback is from those who decide to partake. I would also like to thank those organisations who have offered discounts to those in the city, it is a great offering to have on the night.”
