We are a relatively new group here in Limerick, having formed in February 2018. We usually meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 14.30 in our lovely new meeting venue in University of Limerick Access Campus, Unit J, LEDP, (Innovation Hub) Roxboro Roundabout, Limerick (opposite Tesco).
At our meetings we have a speaker to address the group on a topic of interest to us, and this is generally a local person, perhaps a professional person with a specific area of expertise, or maybe someone who has an interesting experience or hobby to share with us. We also organise outings for the group from time to time, to some place of interest in the locality, or perhaps further afield around the country. We have been enjoying great exercise and relaxation sessions "Limber up with Joan, relax with Michele" on Zoom every Monday at 11 am in the comfort of our homes over the past two years. These have been suspended for the summer, but hopefully we can bring them back for again in the autumn 2022. Members will be notified by email when these very enjoyable sessions will resume.
We have a number of sub-groups members can choose to join:
- a book club
- a poetry appreciation group
- a gardening group,
- a photography group,
- a walking group and
- a music appreciation group
Some of these sub-groups meet in Limerick City Gallery of Art, Pery Square. For more information click ‘subgroups’ above. Other sub-groups may be set up in the future to reflect the interests of our members.
