Limerick’s new all-weather Milk Market officially opened – THE new all-weather milk market has been officially opened by Environment Minister John Gormley this Friday.
More than 250 people were at the Milk Market as part of a special open day of celebration, organised by the trustees.
The multi-million euro project began work in 2003, with planning permission granted early last year. It has 43 regular traders, with many more temporary stalls.
Speaking at the launch, David O’Mahony said: “This is a great day for Limerick. Thanks to the support of so many people, we are witnessing the transformation of one of the oldest and most historic markets in Ireland into one of the most modern markets in Europe, while still retaining its great character.”
Meanwhile, Minister Gormley added: “I think the market is a real symbol of the transformed Limerick. It’s another symbol of that would be the transformed Thomond Park. I see the structure is based on Munich’s Olympic Stadium. The stands remind me of what is happening in continental Europe. You can see Limerick is really a thriving, European city. You are getting a real flavour of Limerick when you come here.”
