While Limerick is a Purple Flag location all year round, this Friday 19th to Sunday 21st of October, 2018 (Purple Flag Weekend) marks Limerick’s celebration of receiving this important award. WHAT IS PURPLE FLAG WEEKEND? Participating Limerick Purple Flag venues will celebrate with special Purple Flag themed offers, Purple Flag activities, events and competitions.
