Thread: Limerick (2014 City of Culture) takes another hit

    Default Limerick (2014 City of Culture) takes another hit

    Belltable Arts Centre goes into liquidation - RTÉ News

    Already without a cinema in he city and the only music shop (HMV) gone under, Limerick's only arts centre has now gone to the wall. It really is no surprise. The city centre is a wasteland of closed shops and derelict buildings.

    The city has two ministers who sit at cabinet and the only thing they have done to stop the collapse of the country's third city is to provide help for the wealthy owners of the city's Georgian buildings and even that isn't approved as of yet.

    Just heard that. A great pity, as the Belltable was very innovative and proactive over the years. A great location too. Still, Limerick is very active in the arts and has some great people promoting the arts and some terrific venues. The UL Concert Hall is the best concert arena of its size in the country.

    I hope the Belltable can re-open.

    The two Limerick ministers are exclusively interested in the welfare of their own back pockets,and nothing else. Same as O Dea was before them. Complete and utter wasters.

    When did the cinema close? I remember visiting the multiplex there years ago to see Gladiator.

    Shame about the Belltable, it was a lovely "space", as the luvvies say

    All three cinema complexes are out of the city and are not within walking distance.

    The Limetree wiped out the Belltable, it seems.
