In this presentation, sociologist Niamh Hourigan, editor of the collection Understanding Limerick maps the city's most complex and unique qualities. Niamh will explore how Limerick's past shapes its contemporary reality and highlights the significant role of the city's diverse local communities have played in dealing with the range of challenges faced by its citizens.
