peer-reviewed; The horse industry is a major contributor to the economy, rural diversity and culture of Ireland. It is a multi-faceted industry with significant regional spread. It is important to rural Ireland as it provides jobs and economic activity where other opportunities are limited. The horse industry can be divided into three broad sectors: the Thoroughbred Industry (TB), the Sport Horse Industry (SH) and other subsidiary services that support both the TB and SH industries. The objective of this study was to quantify the contribution of the horse industry to the economy of rural communities in Ireland using a case study of Co. Limerick. An expenditure approach was adopted for this analysis as this is deemed to be the most effective method to assess economic impact. The study was carried out using a personally administered questionnaire. The study took place in Co. Limerick. All horse enterprises involved contributed to the local economy through direct business activities and/or their use of subsidiary goods and services. For the purposes of this study Co. Limerick was divided into five regions: Castleconnell, Rathkeale, Newcastle, Bruff and Killmallock. The population of horses from these regions was representative of both the TB and SH industries. The questionnaire examined the following areas: number and type of horse...

Front and back covers and pages from The Magazine of Magazines bound collection. In 1751, Limerick printer Andrew Welsh began printing an edition of the London based The Magazine of Magazines. Welsh, having learnt his trade from his father in Cork, began printing the Magazine, based in a building called ‘The Exchange’ on Nicholas Street, Englishtown, near the cathedral in Limerick. The Limerick publication started life as a direct, almost page for page, reprint of the London edition, printed by William Owen. The publication was a major undertaking for Welsh in Limerick. Welsh claims to have bought an entirely new set of type dedicated to printing the magazine, and the Limerick edition (like many other Irish re-prints of English works) is of better quality than its London counterpart. The Limerick edition was not simply aimed at the immediate urban public; there are three named retailers in Cork as well as one in Dublin. The Magazine, which was published for the best part of two decades, from 1751 to 1769, is a miscellany comprising of extracts from numerous eighteenth century periodicals and journals and covers subjects as diverse as Science, Philosophy, Medicine, Meteorology, Religion, Mythology and Literature to name but a few. It was the first periodical publication to feature Thomas Gray’s famous Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard...

peer-reviewed; This research aims to create a rational basis for designing and implementing a plan for Limerick Smarter Travel. This plan will pay particular attention to community engagement. This research establishes a rationale for a community engagement strategy. Precedent studies also provide direct guidance for this rationale. The objective of the plan is to develop a local culture of Smarter Travel in Limerick communities using best international practice, and thereby achieving behavioural change in travel mode choice. This research looks at hard physical infrastructure and soft community based interventions, to promote lasting travel behaviour change in five pilot zones in Limerick. The literature on Smarter Travel is reviewed. Results from a comprehensive study of six international exemplar Smarter Travel Cities is reported. Current travel modes, using census data, and traveller’s mode choice criteria, using focus groups, in Limerick City are investigated and reported. However, census data only provides information on trips to work, school, and college. Focus groups were employed to investigate beliefs, attitudes, and decision criteria relating to existing travel choices in Limerick and to Smarter Travel modes. The analysis provides a rationale to allow proposals for an appropriate community engagement strategy to be formulated. Quantitative census data demonstrates significant local variation in travel behaviour in the five pilot zones. This same data allows spatial subdivision and grouping according to local travel behaviour. Qualitative focus group data show the factors motivating mode choice also vary significantly. From a travel standpoint target groups should be characterised by socio-economic...

peer-reviewed; The study of history is a well established discipline. For over sixty years teachers and students of history have been served by Irish Historical Studies which has set the standard for most professional writing of history in Ireland. In recent years historians have opted to answer new needs by publishing new publications such as the Irish Economic and Social History Journal and History Ireland. Irish universities too, have a well earned reputation in fostering historical analysis and scholarship. The University of Limerick History Society, established in 1997, devoted itself to promoting the study of history within the University. With the active support of Dr. Bernadette Whelan and the history faculty the Society grew to become one of the most active groups on campus. At its foundation, members of the History Society adopted the idea of producing a journal dedicated to publishing both undergraduate and postgraduate work. In conjunction with this. members of the Society thought it appropriate to publish the papers presented at their meetings. This first volume of History Studies contains papers presented to the History Society, including those delivered as part of the Holocaust Forum which took place in November-December 1997. With the support of the history faculty and the financial support of generous benefactors within the University...

peer-reviewed; The publication of History Studies volume 3 marks the beginning of a new period. The involvement of founder-editors David A. Fleming and Edward Horgan has come to an end. Both have done a magnificent job in establishing History Studies. On behalf of the History Societv of the University of Limerick we, the new editor, thank David and Edward for their work, They have made it easy for us to continue and expand History Studies. The variety and quality of topics tackled by the authors, shows that the study of history is alive and well in Ireland at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The articles presented here deal with a variety of issues such as education, medical history, and the First World War. This gives hope for future volumes of History Studies in which we plan to broaden the range of topics even further. We hope that readers will gain as much pleasure from reading the articles as we did editing them, Andreas Hüther Sarah Power

peer-reviewed; It is with great pleasure that the editors present volume four of History Studies. It is hoped that the reader finds this volume a worthy successor to the preceeding volumes, these provide the foundations upon which we have sought to build. This journal represents a vital and in many respects a unique link between the University of Limerick History Society, Department of History and the broader university communities. The key function of this publication is to act as a gateway, providing an opportunity to young scholars to publish portions of their work. It also contributes to what is an impressive profile of historical publishing within the University of Limerick student community. As editors we were constantly humbled by the breadth and depth of the subjects tackled by the authors. It was our intention to provide as free a canvass as possible, to allow the contributors to explore their topics as they wished. This approach was pursued with the intenlion of creating a collection of pieces, that as well as supplying the reader with information, was also lively and entenaining. The greatest joy for us was when assembling the final document, the thematic interrelationships revealed themselves. It is our hope that History Studies is a much a joy to read as it was to edit.

peer-reviewed; It is with great pleasure that the editors present volume five of History Studies, the journal of the History Society of the University of Limerick. It is our opinion that this volume marks a watershed in the life of this journal. The strength and quality of the articles is selfevident. In this volume we are delighted to publish work from contributors across a broad spectrum of academia; encompassing undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. At the risk of striking an arrogant note, the articles contained within volume five have reached new heights in respect of diversity, content and writing style. The editing of this volume was both rewarding and entertaining. To our contributors we are most grateful for their insight and generosity. It is our hope that brave young scholars will continue to contribute to our journal. Without them we would not be writing this editorial. Bravo! Declan Jackson John Maguire ]ennifer Moore

non-peer reviewed; The aim of the University of Limerick Literary Archive Project was to produce a collection of web-based resources on the work of writers from the Limerick area. A number of the writers which were studied on this project are contemporary. As relatively little has been written about these writers in literary circles the undertaking of this project is validated. This particular project focuses on the work of Limerick-born author Michael Collins.

Postcard. Colour photograph of River Shannon with Limerick City in background. Number 2/LK-018. Printed on reverse "Limerick city, where the Shannon river meets the sea is one of the most progressive of Irish cities, where the past and present mingle pleasantly. That part of the city called Newtown Pery was designed and planned in 1767, and is the Limerick of wide streets crossing at right angles, and the pleasantly tree-sprinkled People's Park. The tall column in the park commemorates Thomas Spring Rice (1790-1866) first Baron Monteagle, an enlightened and progressive Limerick citizen."

The University of Limerick Oral History Project (ULOHP) aims to create and archive an oral history of the University of Limerick (UL). From its foundation in 1972 as the National Institute of Higher Education (NIHE) with an initial cohort of 114 students at Plassey House, the University has led the way in pioneering and innovative third-level educational development. It has combined exemplary teaching and research programmes with a tradition of dedication to the wider economic and social needs of both Limerick and the national community. The purpose of the project is to create a digital archive which will record the personal contribution and memories of those who were part of the foundation and development of the NIHE and, from 1989, the University of Limerick. As the University approaches its fortieth anniversary in 2012, these personal narratives in audio and written format, present a rich portrait of the place and people which made up UL. Driven by an energetic enthusiasm for this dynamic ‘new’ third-level institution, founding academics and administrative staff, together with local and national public figures, revisit in their own words memories of their own contribution and personal milestones in the history of UL. These important oral histories will be available for consultation by present and future students of the University as well as for in any future history projects of the University and Limerick city. The project...

peer-reviewed; The quality and diversity of the contributions to volume seven of History Studies is indicative of the niche which the journal has established in the field of academic publishing as the sole post-graduate produced history periodical in Ireland. The broad compass of historical research being conducted at undergraduate, post-graduate and post-doctoral levels is reflected in the content of this volume. Last year, volume six marked a new and highly successful departure for History Studies with the introduction of a book review section and the establishment of an annual forum. This edition consolidates these developments as well as expanding the scope of the journal to incorporate an archival profile of Special Collections at the University of Limerick. It is envisaged that this will become a standard feature of future editions. The History Studies forum has taken its lead from progressive independent initiatives such as the annual Irish History Students' Association Conference and the Irish Historical Society post graduate seminar, which provide a medium for postgraduate interaction. A series of student-led collaborative inter-university conferences have also proved to be successful in establishing research links and awareness between post-graduate students. On the publishing front...

non-peer-reviewed; Despite the relative increase in the number and variety of addiction courses available, very few evaluations have been carried out on the impact and effectiveness of these courses. This evaluation of the effectiveness and impact of the CASC© in Limerick City is located within the wider context of the drugs education policy in Ireland. There were two primary reasons for undertaking this evaluation: firstly, to measure the effectiveness of the course, and secondly, to determine the impact that the course has had on participants.
