Limerick gets canal walkway


A canal walkway has been opened from Limerick city to the university as a result of a new bridge which was put into operation at the weekend.

Mr Pat Moriarty, chairman of Limerick Civic Trust, which is responsible for the project, said it was made possible by £25,000 in sponsorship from Guinness. To be known as the Guinness Bridge, it is to be dedicated to the memory of Mr Kevin Hannan (77), a local historian and member of the Civic Trust who died recently.
