Lucey Bowen outside the Old Town Hall Building – Rutland Street

The Old Town Council Building  

Remember: democracy is like these walls, it harkens back to Greece and Rome.
Remember: politics is people discussing how their society should be governed.
Remember: gather in coffee shops, read newspapers, argue.
Remember: to be a citizen in the city is to walk its streets.

 

– Lucey Bowen

Lucey Bowen’s great great grandfather served on the City Council, 1847-1850, and edited the Limerick and Clare Examiner of the same era.
