Print THE Nicholas Street Medieval Tidy Towns committee celebrated a landmark success in the national Tidy Towns competition recently, coming top in the country in the Urban or Rural Village category.The committee was formed in April of this year after locals grew weary of asking for help with the neglected condition of the area and it is made up of residents and business representatives of the Nicholas Street, Church Street and Castle Street area.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The group’s chairperson Michael Tracey said: “We felt we had to act for ourselves to try and get this area of its knees. We put in a lot of effort and we have the street looking well.“However, this is just the first step in what will be a very long strategic plan for the area. I want to congratulate all our committee and we look forward to further progress next year.”Dr James Ring of the Limerick Civic Trust, which is a member of the group, added: “We have a five year plan to gradually increase the catchment area to take in the entire medieval city to include the English and Irish towns.“This year coming we plan to include the Abbey area of King’s Island before moving over the bridge to take in Broad Street and John’s Street in the coming years.” NewsLocal NewsNational award for Nicholas Street Medieval QuarterBy Liam Togher – September 18, 2013 974 Linkedin 490 volunteers attend Tidy Towns webinar hosted by Limerick City and County Council Love for Limerick as stars line up for St. Patrick’s Day’s video TAGSfeaturedLimerick Civic TrustMedieval QuarterNicholas StreetTidy Towns last_img read more

first_imgIt is obvious that we need to entice young adults to become basketball referees.  In the course of watching high school basketball this past season, I doubt if I saw more than a couple referees who were under the age of 40 doing a varsity game.  If you are good at your job, you move to the college ranks rather quickly.It is not that the older referees can’t still call a game, but because high school basketball has become so rapid fire a lot of them have trouble keeping up with the pace for 32 minutes.  It is not like in the old days when you had center jumps and a lot of teams played zone defenses.  Now it is “in your face” defense and “up and down” the floor offense.Unless we entice young people to enter the profession, it will become very difficult to find 3 qualified people to referee a varsity game.  There are a couple downfalls.  First, it is the money that high schools can afford to pay, and the second is the travel that is required.  If the pool were larger, you would not have to travel as far, and if the pay were raised, it would be good pocket money–something all people need.  It would also help if all of us respected the referees more.  You can’t blame people for not wanting to put up with the ridicule.last_img read more
