To Build A Bridge

On Sunday the 23rd of August, as part of Heritage Week, Limerick Riverpath Volunteers will be hosting an event dedicated to the Black Bridge in Plassey.

We will meet on the Limerick side of the bridge at 4pm. Thanks to the kind participation of Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society, we will have short talks on the history of the bridge, followed by a picnic at the Fisherman’s Cottages, so we can share information on the current status of the bridge and what might be needed to restore it.


If you are interested in the past, present and future of the Black Bridge in Plassey, your presence would be most appreciated. There is great affection for the bridge, so we would like people attending – many of whom assist us in our efforts to clear the area of litter – to be as well informed and socially engaged as possible in their wish to get the bridge reopened.

The event is supported by the UL Environmental Committee.

We hope to see you there.
We can be contacted at if you need further details.
