Limerick in 2014 was an extremely busy year with Limerick City of Culture and we at Limerick’s Life were heavily involved with many projects this year, almost too many to name. One of our most memorable though was when for three days in September we ran around the city chasing Grandma, the Limerick Giant, along with almost a quarter of a million other people, posting live pictures on Twitter.
Limerick’s Life was very busy in 2014. Not only were we able to contribute 100 posts to the website, but we were also featured in articles in the Limerick Voice, Limerick Leader and Limerick Chronicle, RTE’s Nationwide and we contributed to shows on Limerick’s Live 95FM and WiredFm.
Additionally, our Facebook page now has over 5,100 likes, our Twitter page has over 3,000 followers and our videos on YouTube has over 30,000 views.
We love what we do here at Limerick’s Life, and we know that we would not be as popular without your devotion, you who read our articles, share our Facebook posts, and watch our videos. So, from everyone here at Limerick’s Life, thank you.
