Download Strategic Plan


Limerick Learning Neighbourhoods was launched by the Limerick Community Education Network (LCEN) and its partners during the Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival week on 10th April 2019. Learning Neighbourhoods aims to benefit residents by taking the learning city concept to the neighbourhood level. The programme brings local groups, residents, businesses and clubs together to promote and showcase the different forms of learning in their area. The Learning Neighbourhood concept was developed in Cork over the past number of years. The initiative in Limerick was brought to life following a workshop and study visits held in 2018 by the LCEN and was inspired by a desire to develop learning neighbourhood initiatives in local areas across the city. The Learning Neighbourhood steering group are working with four local neighbourhoods: Southside, Northside, City Centre and St. Mary’s.
