Ormston House





Women of Limerick is a mobile phone app to remember and celebrate women from Limerick’s history. Launched in 2021, Sharon Slater has mapped thirty women across the city to mark their contributions to the arts, education, health and politics, both locally and around the world. For National Heritage Week, she has created a new layer on the map, locating public artworks by women artists. From modest interventions to large-scale commissions, the selection of ten permanent artworks, at prominent sites and hiding in plain sight, creates a new walking trail through the city.

You can download Women of Limerick for free from the Apple Store here and from Google Play here. The Public Art update will be published during National Heritage Week, 14-22 August 2021.
