Something for Everyone
Limerick International Women's Organisation is dedicated to enriching the lives of community members in Limerick area. Our Committee works extra hard all year long in order to keep things interesting at Limerick International Women's Organisation! There are a variety of programs and activities available for people of all ages to engage in, and we’re happy to offer our community a wide range of options for them to enjoy.
On the last Tuesday of each month, we meet in the Watch House Cross Library, 2 Cosgrave Park, Moyross. We start with tea & coffee at 10:30AM and finish around 12:00 noon. It's a great way to mingle and we often have an invited guest speaker on a variety of interesting topics such as walking the Camino, gardening, or learning about guide dogs!
COME AND JOIN US for Nordic walking. This is a total-body version of walking that can be enjoyed by both athletes and non athletes. The activity is performed with specially designed walking poles similar to ski poles. It is more beneficial than regular walking as Nordic walkers use more of their entire body.
The Book Club meets monthly, usually on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. It is an evening event and starts at 7:00 pm. As with most other events, it is held at a different member’s home each month and new members are always welcome. Previous books include And The Birds Rained Down, The Green Road, A History of Seven Killings, Norah Webster, An Invention of Wings, Valley of Amazement, The Signature of All Things and The Children Act.
We choose a restaurant and meet for dinner, sometimes availing of the “early bird specials”. A lot of interesting and exotic places have opened up in Limerick in the past couple of years so it is an adventure to try them out. Other times we have a Themed Lunch or Dinner where everyone participating makes one dish to produce a feast. So far we've done Italian, Fondue, Vegetarian, Malaysian and more!
This group meets either in a different member’s home every Thursday at 10:30AM or at a local tea/coffee shop. It is a chance to relax and have a chat as well as a forum for getting answers to queries or sharing concerns in a social setting.
Fancy a game of Mahjong? This is a tile-based game developed in China but gained popularity universally since the 20th century. Played by four players it is a game of skill and strategy.
SHANGHAI CARDS NIGHT
We play Shanghai once a month, usually the first Monday of the month, again, in rotating member’s homes. All welcome – we teach you the game, so join us for the fun. It’s usually held at 7pm.
Members who would like to improve their French get together for French conversation. This is usually arranged in one of the member’s homes and happens about once a month during the day. There’s talk of a Spanish conversation group too, so please contact us if you’re interested.
Every few months we have a Special Crafts morning where we learn to make a new craft. Supplies are provided at a minimal cost and we all work together to make something new to bring home!
Every year we get together for special events like Christmas lunches, Thanksgiving Dinner, Spring Lunch, Chinese New Year, and excursions to Dublin, the Burren and more
