Solicitor to chair Limerick Civic Trust

Limerick solicitor Donal Creaton (pictured), who was recently appointed chair of Limerick Civic Trust, has said that he wants the voluntary organisation to play a bigger role in improving Limerick’s heritage and environment for its community, its citizens, and visitors.

The trust undertakes projects that aim to make places more attractive, enjoyable and distinctive. It also undertakes conservation and preservation projects, as well as educational and research work.

Creaton said that his focus for the year ahead would be on attracting more contributing members and patrons, in order to build up the financial support to start and finish some of a long list of restoration and heritage-improvement projects.

Key role

The solicitor also plans to develop stronger working relationships with the trust's partners and public bodies.

“There are hugely exciting and ambitious plans for Limerick in train at the moment, and I believe Limerick Civic Trust has a key role in supporting the delivery of these,” said Creaton.

He pointed out that the trust’s headquarters at Bishop’s Palace marks the start of the ‘Royal Mile’ – one of the oldest cross-city routes, which had the potential to become a significant tourism trail.
