Ei Electronics give Tom Clifford Park a lift

Shannon, April 28th 2021. Last week Ei Electronics gave Limerick-based Young Munster RFC
a lift – quite literally !

The club has a lounge on the first floor of its clubhouse at Tom Clifford Park, which is also
a viewing area on match days for its elderly supporters who cannot brave the elements or
are advanced in years and are unable to stand and watch a match. The clubhouse is also a
social activity location for local residents in the Greenfields area.

The first floor location has however proved restrictive for elderly and disabled visitors.
After an appeal to Corporate friends to assist with the cost of installing a lift to provide first
floor access, Ei answered Young Munster’s Call.

In line with its CSR objective of providing ongoing support to community-beneficial projects
within the region, Ei Electronics viewed this as a very worthwhile endeavour, which would
provide a much needed boost to a group of people who heretofore had been denied access
to facilities at Tom Clifford Park

Costing in excess of €40,000 to complete, Limerick City and County Council is supporting
the project through the Disability Grant Scheme to the tune of €7,500. Ei Electronics has
agreed to contribute €10,000 towards the cost. The goal is to have the lift in place for the
coming season.
