We had a brilliant day with the committee and kids here in Delmege park taking part in the Limerick Clean Up .. We have done all the roads and maintained the greenery , Also cleaning out the sewers. It was a great day for all but some help would have been appreciated from Limerick City/County Council it can be hard at times maintaining the upkeep by ourselves. We would like to extending our thanks to all involved for always lending a helping hand and standing by us, There are alot of things to look forward in the coming months with the finishing being added to the garden and the anniversary of our garden of remembrance.. we hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend and god bless you all!!

New additions for the coming year !

Posted 2 years ago, 20 Mar 2019 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

Due to the ongoing costs of electricity in our garden we have decided to go solar with the lighting to keep costs down. As soon as the fresh weather picks up and stays around for a bit we plan on repainting , planting , and adding some new additions to our beautiful garden in preparation for the anniversary of the holy garden! We would also like to thank Alberto from Italy who came all the way from Italy with his group to see our garden first hand its heartwarming to see people just as passionate and impressed by the garden the way we are. As a community its very rewarding for our hard work and time to be acknowledged , We are very proud of what we have accomplished and with the luck of god will continue to do what we love with the garden. We would also like to say how great the Moyross Community Centre is looking and it's great to see it is finally up and running it really was worth the wait!!

Tommy Daly chairperson of Moyross Residence Alliance , Would like to wish all the people of Moyross/Limerick a very merry christmas and a happy new year! We hope that the new year brings Joy, Peace and Content to all and hope it's a good one for everyone. This time of year is about reflecting and we feel its only fair to thank all of our own for all of the hard work they've put in to our garden it's still an ongoing project but the effort and help we've gotten from our committee is always the best we could ask for, We can't thank you enough... And on a finishing note let's all remember it's not whats under the tree that matters , it's about who is around it!

UP THE MATCH!!!!!!!!

Posted 3 years ago, 21 Aug 2018 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

As we are enjoying the hustle and bustle of our victory in Limerick the past day or two , we thought we would take the time out to voice how unbelievably proud we are as a county of the hardworking young men on the Limerick Hurling Team. What an achievement it is to be part of such a monumental , emotional moment for many! The performance of the lads was nothing short of amazing and was a well deserved win for each and every player on the team! One thing we have always had as a county is passion , dedication and determination and that showed all the way through the All Ireland Final on Sunday! After 45 years these gentleman took it home and made their county ,coaches, family and friends the proudest they could have with the heart and soul they poured into not just the final , but also their training and the lead up to said event. It was another great achievement to see Corpus Christi Choir performing on Up The Match the Saturday night. You couldn't have picked a more talented and deserving group of kids to perform and I think we speak for the whole of the city that it was heartwarming to watch and all of you definitely did fellow Limerick woman Dolores O'Riordan proud it was beautiful and such a big step in the right direction for us as a community we have alot of superstars to come! And on a finishing note .. COME ON YOU BOYS IN GREEN!!!

Our Blossoming Garden Prospering In This famous Irish Heatwave!

Posted 3 years ago, 12 Jul 2018 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

We've been busy bees this summer with making new additions to the Moyross Community Garden. As you can see we've planted a range of new flower beds, vegetable patches and fruit patches. As we referenced in one of our recent articles due to the neglect on the community centres behalf when it came to the upkeep of cutting the grass and maintaining the greenery we decided to make the job that bit easier on ourselves and used the money we've saved up this year to purchase some machinery for the garden since nobody else is gonna lend a helping hand. At this stage it is an outrage that one area of a community can be discriminated against the way we have been over the years just because we stick up for the people and want our community to progress and be seen as equal. we will be having an end of summer fun day sometime in August for the kids with face painting and refreshments more details will be added on a later date , And we would also like to extend a big thank you to the Monks of Moyross for running a great summer for the moyross community again this year it's a great treat for them now that schools out and the community really appreciates it!!

Updates on distributor road part 3

Posted 3 years ago, 20 Jun 2018 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

The MRA Committee have constantly campaigned meeting counselors and TD's on the proposal of the new road even when all of our counselors were not behind it yet to our surprise it has come to our attention that a certain forum have taken it upon themselves to take credit for such growth in our community which we have backed and pushed all along. To be precise last year chairperson Tommy Daly and the committee attended the welcoming of Simon Covney and Mr. Daly happened to be the only one that brought up the plans for the road and Mr. Covney was respectful enough to entertain and give explanation to the question and said he would follow it up immediately, not only that if you look at our articles on this site Mr. Daly also appeared on TV3 to speak about the road 2 years ago. Now that results are showing we find that said forum are claiming they have been working with the regeneration for years to ensure this plan went through yet the MRA were the only ones to address this at the meeting with Mr. Covney. Since we have been so passionate and outspoken on our site, and social media outlets of how we need this to go ahead , attending meetings and using our voice common sense tells us that this so called forum working together with the regeneration DID NOT HAPPEN. Surely if it did you would want your audience and communities that have showed interest in such proposals would be the first to be clued in you did not support it then so don't pretend to support it now that things are going the right way! Let's stop playing both sides and start to actually communicate and involve your apparent communities it's about people ego's its about the people , OUR PEOPLE!
