NewsLocal NewsPersistence wins day for Dockers’ MemorialBy admin – August 17, 2009 590 Advertisement Previous articleGardaí investigate sexual assaultNext articleSpiritStore admin Facebook Linkedin Print Email Twitter WhatsApp WORK on a bronze monument to commemorate the thousands of Limerick dockers, is to commence shortly.Two years ago, Limerick City Council agreed to finance the project and a special committee, chaired by Cllr Jim Long, was set up to oversee the project.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up There was a very positive response to the invitation for design submissions for the work and an appropriate riverside location was agreed on.,“However, the project ran into some trouble when funding was cut back and we had to delay it, but I’m now absolutely thrilled that our persistence to have a fitting monument erected to the generations of men who worked under very harsh conditions for very little pay, is now about to be delivered,” Cllr Long told the Limerick Post. “The original funding has had to be reduced, due to the current economic climate – we have 77,000 euro but are fairly confident of getting some additional private investment. I’m absolutely delighted that our promise to the families and descendants of the men who worked in the docks, can now be fulfilled.“Work will commence shortly on the monument, which has been commissioned, and we are very hopeful for completion before Christmas”.The site on which it will be erected is on the riverside quay, opposite the former ESB offices, on Honan’s Quay.Cllr Long confirmed that the committee will also proceed with producing memorial scrolls on velum, recording the name and employment periods of former dockers, which will be presented to their descendants.A spokesperson for City Hall said that the Limerick sculptor, Michael Duhan, originally from Wolfe Tone Street, whose father worked in the docks, has been commissioned to execute the work, and she also confirmed their optimism for private investment.

Ruby Walsh has revealed he is “utterly perplexed” by the negativity surrounding Hurricane Fly as he aims to regain his crown in Tuesday’s Stan James Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Press Association The 2011 winner was a disappointing third when odds-on favourite 12 months ago, but has appeared as good as ever in three starts this season, completing the hat-trick with his third triumph in the Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown. “I know there has been much negativity of late about the horse, but it has left me utterly perplexed,” the jockey said in his Irish Examiner column. “All I will say is that those of us closest to him are more than happy at where he is at the moment.” Having suffered two heavy falls at Leopardstown last weekend, Walsh has not been seen in competitive action since and will not be back in the saddle until the start of the Festival. He said: “My absence is purely precautionary and I’m 100% ready to go. I left Leopardstown, however, with a sprained ankle and it was badly bruised. “I could have ridden this week, no problem, but both Willie Mullins and Paul Nicholls were anxious I gave it a skip and to arrive fresh and well for the start of the Festival. “It’s a similar situation for Paul Townend, who was also in the wars at Leopardstown. Willie wanted Paul to also head straight to Cheltenham and that is now the case. “Our whole season, of course, has been geared towards this extravaganza and it is terrific that both Willie and Paul’s horses are in the form of their lives. “That wasn’t the case a year ago, when they were just a bit flat. I don’t think Nicky Henderson – he had seven winners last year – will find it as easy this time round.”
