Each and every week, dozens of musicians load their equipment in and out of rented units at Limerick Self Storage, honing their craft, with the dreams and aspirations of one day bringing their music to the world like The Cranberries once did.

On January 15th 2018, Limerick lost their most beloved daughter.

From Limerick Self Storage, and Limerick artists of every genre, this is our tribute and thank you to Dolores O’Riordan and The Cranberries.

All proceeds of this video are going to Midwest Simon Community.

The Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run medal

On Saturday, September 16, at 10am.

At Waterford Airport.

A 5km memorial run to honour the four Rescue 116 crew members who died in March – Captain Dara Fitzpatrick, Captain Mark Duffy, Winch Operator Paul Ormsby and Winchman Ciarán Smith – will be held.

Proceeds from the run will go to the children’s charity Touching Hearts and South Eastern Mountain Rescue Association.

The organisers write:

The Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run has released details of their run finisher’s medal. The medal depicts a Sikorsky S92 Helicopter flying over the sea on a rescue mission. In the background are the numbers “116”, together with four flying doves honouring the lost Rescue 116 crew members.

…Speaking about the medal one of the event’s organisers Captain Barry O’Connor said, “The doves are a touching tribute to our four colleagues who tragically lost their lives in the service of others on March 14th this year”

[Dara’s sister] Niamh Fitzpatrick said: “This medal is a beautiful memento of what will be an emotional run in memory of Dara. To have a design that captures the helicopter and the four crew members is very special; this is a medal that Dara would be proud of.”

Those wishing to take part can register here.

Entry is €20.

A 45kg bust of whistleblower Edward Snowden fused to a US Revolution war memorial in Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn.

Installed on Monday morning by an anonymous trio of artists, the bust was subsequently covered by a tarp and removed by the NY Parks Department.

The perpetrators have a mould and plan to release further Snowdens.
