“Challenge the status quo to create a path that others will grow from.”

Who do you admire in business?

So many to choose from, but locally, Margot Slattery, a proud Limerick woman who has consistently conquered the challenges that were in front of her. She has a great story.

What are we doing well in Limerick?

Limerick is emerging as a truly attractive destination for diverse sectors from technology to medical device and from financial services to professional services. The combination of our educated workforce powered by first class educational institutes and a comfortable lifestyle is our unique selling point.

“Limerick is emerging as a truly attractive destination for diverse sectors.”

What way could the city improve?

More pedestrianisation in the city and more quality accommodation within the city and make it far easier for better access for shoppers, commuters, workers to get in and out of the city.

What makes Limerick unique?

The people in Limerick make this place truly unique. Without their creativity and risk-taking we would not be on the upward curve we’re currently on.
