Limerick Comhairle na nÓg

About us

Current topic:

Limerick Comhairle is focusing on the topic of Politics and Civic Engagement in 2017, working in partnership with the Politics Department in University of Limerick. We want to encourage civic engagement in young people and to find out why so many young people lack interest in politics: statistics show very low engagement in the 18-25 year old age bracket when it comes to voting.

In early 2017, three young people from our Comhairle , Megan McMahon, Christopher Cummins, and Keith Allen, visited Boden, in North Sweden as part of an Eramus+ programme called ‘The Key.’ Young people from Sweden, Malta and Ireland were all involved in a week-long programme centered on entrepreneurship and creativity – all in snowy, -15 degree surroundings just outside the Arctic Circle.
