David Norris praises “wonderful changes” in Limerick

David Norris has attacked Civil servants who won’t move to limerick because they do not consider the city cosmopolitan.He hit out while he was in the Shannon Region as a guest speaker at the annual fundraiser for the Rainbow support service which runs a gay helpline.

The Senator elected to the Seanad, criticised the civil servants who are reluctant to move to Limerick as part of the ongoing Decentralisation plan.

He said he didn’t have much sympathy for those who baulked at moving to Limerick saying,

"I would have no difficulty in being transferred to Limerick if it was me, I am continually pleased and surprised by the wonderful changes happening in Limerick."

He also commented on the murder of Brian Fitzgerald and praised the limerick people saying,

"I congratulate the decent citizens of Limerick that try and stand up to those thugs. I congratulate that brave doorman who stood up to them."
