In recent weeks,  Limerick Chamber has hosted events involving Ministers Hogan, Noonan, O’Sullivan, Deenihan and Varadkar and individually and collectively, they all re-inforced their commitment to Limerick’s revitalisation through integrating the city and county local authortities and the regeneration agencies into one authority, the appointment of Master Planners to develop a master plan for Limerick City, the appointment of a manager in charge of the new single authority by mid-year, a decision to separate Shannon Airport from the DAA and to appoint an interim board by Easter who will be tasked with coming up with a business plan which will be commercially viable. Limerick has the positive focus of cabinet at the moment.  It is time for us all to embrace it and convert it into a sustainable new economic success story for Limerick and the region.
