IPB Pride of Place Competition Update

No comments

Keep your fingers crossed for Murroe this weekend, when the winners of the 2016 IPB Pride of Place competition are announced at the Gala Awards Ceremony in Belfast on Saturday, November 26th. Over 1000 guests, representing communities across the island of Ireland, are expected to attend the ceremony, which this year takes place in the Waterfront Hall, Belfast.

‘Pride of Place’ is an All-Ireland competition which showcases the best in community achievement on the island of Ireland. The competition is organised by Cooperation Ireland under its Local Authority Programme, which highlights their commitment to supporting community groups that undertake initiatives to improve their communities and regions. Pride of Place is unique in that it specifically recognises the involvement of the local community in all aspects of rural and urban regeneration, including enhancing social cohesion, heritage and environmental awareness.

The Pride of Place competition is open to every local authority north and south of the border to nominate groups to represent their county. This year, Murroe had the honour of being nominated by Limerick City and County Council as their entry for Population Category 3 (population under 2000). It joins 3 other Limerick entries for 2016: Broadford Development Association, Liskennet Day & Recreational Service and Limerick Youth Theatre.

Pride of Place Judges Tom and Alison Dowling visited Murroe on July 11th, where our many groups and organisations had the opportunity to showcase the remarkable work being done within the community. The judges were treated to a half hour presentation in the Fitzgerald Room of the Muintir na Tire Hall, followed by an opportunity to meet and speak to the groups at stands set up in the main hall, and in a tour of the village and Glenstal Abbey.

You can view the community survey booklets presented to the judges at these links:

Adult survey responses: pop_survey_adults

Child survey responses: pop_childrens_survey

You can also view photographs from the day here.

A huge amount of effort went into preparing for this competition and we would like to thank everybody who contributed and who came out to meet with the judges.

Whatever the outcome on Saturday night, we clearly have a lot to value and be proud of in our community. Lets see if we can get that recognised at a national level!

The Pride of Place Gala Awards will be live streamed, so tune in on Saturday evening, from 7pm, by clicking on this link: http://prideofplace.ie/live-stream-test, or by going to the Pride of Place homepage.

Thank you & please keep those fingers crossed!!!

RTE Doc on One: ‘Kicking the Bucket’

No comments

Next weekend’s ‘Doc on One’ will feature Murroe’s Sinead Dineen, amongst others, explore the subject of ‘Kicking the Bucket’.

Sinead is a Limerick-based visual artist, whose most recent work has dealt with her experience of living with ovarian cancer. She is also one of the founding hosts of the Limerick Death Cafe.

Earlier this year, Sinead and Katie Verling, an artistic director and curator who herself has faced serious illness, organised a series of ‘Kicking the Bucket’ workshops, with the help of funding from the Milford Care Centre’s Compassionate Communities initiative. In these workshops, participants creatively explored and discussed issues concerning illness, death and dying, culminating in a public exhibition of their work in May 2016.

RTE’s ‘Doc on One’ follows the ‘Kicking the Bucket’ group during this process. It was produced by Ronan Kelly and will air on RTE Radio 1 on November 26th at 2pm, and will be repeated on Sunday, November 27th at 7pm.
