Amid concerns that the event would be cancelled in light of the global pandemic, the Team Limerick Clean-Up Committee announced that this year’s event will take place with Limerick hurler Cian Lynch revealing plans for a ‘different but doable’ TLC6 to proceed this Good Friday
The video is a celebration of community, with the Patrickswell native taking viewers on a journey to his roots, giving an insight into the 25-year-old’s background and his pride of place. A key part of this is community involvement, something that Team Limerick Clean-Up will celebrate again in a ‘different but doable’ manner this Good Friday, April 2nd
Speaking at the announcement, Lynch said,
“It’s been a really difficult time for a lot of people over the past 10 months due to COVID-19, but it’s been incredible to see how resilient the people of Limerick can be. This was no more so evident than in the support we received from all corners of the county en route to lifting Liam MacCarthy last December. So, I’d ask people to look after their local area and show their passion for their environment this Good Friday.”
Lynch is asking people to visit www.teamlimerickcleanup.ie and register the interest of themselves and those within their family bubble for this year’s tidy-up. Constant monitoring of the relevant levels of the HSE’s Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021 framework, as well as advice from An Garda Síochána, will be fully taken into account at all times, and health and safety guidelines issued to volunteers before the event takes place. More information on these elements will be rolled out in the lead-up to April 2nd.
Despite being postponed last year, overall TLC participation figures passed the 80,000-mark in 2019 and since inception has seen volunteers come from every walk of life, from schools/colleges and GAA clubs, to Munster Rugby, community/residential groups, businesses, charities and well-known faces locally.
