LIMERICK 
Limerick will be officially declared as an intercultural city during the hosting of a major intercultural conference in the Mid-West next week.

Delegates from across Europe will arrive in Limerick on 21st and 22nd November for the ‘Sports Arts and Culture’ Intercultural Cities Conference and Workshop in the Limerick Strand Hotel which will be addressed by speakers including former international rugby star Keith Wood, All Star Hurler Seán Óg Ó hAilpín and Grand Slam winning rugby player Niamh Briggs.

A charter will be signed by Cathaoirleach Cllr Kevin Sheahan officially declaring Limerick as an intercultural city – only the second Irish city to do so.

“Limerick is the only Irish city besides Dublin to participate in the European Intercultural Cities initiative, giving it the opportunity to exchange and learn with other European cities such as Barcelona, Copenhagen, Rotterdam, London, San Sebastian, Montreal and Limassol,” said Cllr Sheahan.
