A vibrant new web platform hoping to tap into the potential of Limerick’s 3.5 million strong diaspora across the world by nurturing mutually beneficial relationships and enhancing regional development has been launched by Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Patrick O’Donovan.
The aim of the Global Limerick project and associated platform globallimerick.ie is to formalise the Limerick diaspora family and make it real.  

Led by Limerick City & County Council it aims to connect Limerick with its diaspora no matter where they are living around the world.  This includes those who want to connect with people who were born in Limerick, descendants of previous emigrants from Limerick or anyone with an affinity to Limerick, through education, work, or other interests.  

The web platform features Limerick related stories specifically aimed at a Limerick diaspora audience.  A critical step is for story readers to engage with Global Limerick and thereby enable communication/ conversation with them and between them.
