Today With Sean O Rourke Monday 6 January 2014
Limerick City of Culture
Limerick's designation as the first National City of Culture has attracted huge controversy in rcent days and weeks, culminating in the resignation yesterday of Limerick City of Culture CEO Patricia Ryan.
It is the fourth resignation from the controversial project, with Ms. Ryan's resignation following that of artistic director Karl Wallace and two of his programming staff.
At a dramatic meeting last Friday night, upwards of 500 members of the local community expressed their views, amid attempts to prevent the media from attending. Sean spoke to Brian O'Connell starting with the resignation of the CEO Patricia Ryan and reaction from some of those in the artistic and wider community about what's ahead for the City of Culture.
