This year’s Creative Show D’ats Limerick Citaay follows a bride and groom on their wedding day. She’s the bride from hell and he is double booked to referee the Munster v Leinster match and marry his bridezilla. Some of Limerick’s well-known faces save the day, Celia Holman Lee finds a new dress after a dove disaster and Willie O’Dea steps in as best man. In the meantime, a rugby match is played.

This collaboration is in its ninth year, LYT members, service users, choir, dancers and musicians rehearse together over the course of three months culminating in over one hundred fifty participants, performing over the course of two evenings at The Lime Tree Theatre. 

The Daughters of Charity (DOC) Service Limerick was the first to establish day services in Limerick City for adults with intellectual disabilities. The goal of each centre and in keeping with HSE New Directions is through a person centred approach aid in supporting the holistic development of each individual. The over-all aim of this collaboration is to develop sustainable networks and build links in the service user’s local community. The first strand of this collaboration was achieved by introducing service users to LYT members and creating an environment that nurtured inclusion through a rich tradition of theatre and its contemporary practices.  The second strand was establishing a culture of working in tandem with like-minded people from all backgrounds, crossing social and cultural divides, sharing ideas, and build friendships.
Limerick Youth Theatre (LYT) is a company of young performers, dancers, writers, designers, directors, producers and film-makers, located in Limerick.

Ardscoil Rís A holistic education is the core principle of life in Ardscoil Rís where the highest of academic expectations are balanced with a broad co- and extra-curricular programme for our students. As befits a Christian Brothers’ school, under the trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST), a strong Christian ethos is central to life here in Ardscoil Rís. We strive to have the values of the Edmund Rice tradition fully realised in our students, as they journey towards independence and finding their place in society as fully-rounded young men.
