We want you to tell us whether you’ve been Naughty or Nice this year. There may be something for whoever has the best story too. This competition is open only to those who hail from Limerick, needless to say.
(Retweet @limerick2030 to enter via Twitter). It’s entirely possible that you may not be around to see the next occurrence of a sequential date like 11/12/13. In fact, it will be the year 2103 before you could see another. So, to lift your spirits just a teeny bit for Xmas…
…Limerick 2030 are giving away a €100 voucher to spend in the Crescent Shopping Centre, in Limerick.

The Circle phenomenon has hit Ireland. Limerick to be precise. It has dodged the bouncers and gatecrashed our lovely Limerick social media party. Want to know what it’s all about? Yes, we thought so. Don’t know about you, but it seems that everybody is inviting people and it’s sooo annoying.
So in short then, the Circle app is yet another flavour of communication ‘commware’ that is about to hit us from one of the many Internet giants– this time it’s Hawthorne labs. They, in association the people who brought you LikeALittle, are being funded by some large investors (one of which is the actor turned serial-tweeter, Ashton Cutcher). But for a change, they are not pushing another app down our throats. Rather, this app osmotes directly into your brain, all by itself. The secretive nature of Circle’s marketing strategy combined with the lack of instructions on how to use it, is well, cool.
So that’s the backdrop. But what does it do? Well, it’s like Facebook and Twitter had a baby. And that baby had style and was named “Circle”. For example, you’ve heard about Google Glass, right. If you have a Circle account and you are using Google Glass… hey, pictures speak louder than words. There’s a video below and it outlines what will be possible when those two get together.
We would like to issue our own health warning though, from we who like to see all things tech on the horizon. Bi cúramach. The Circle doesn’t care too much about who’s allowed see you; nor does it care who you can see. Also, sharing links on Circle is not easy, it likes to replace your links with it’s own links back to Circle. Yes, it’s crafty. Our verdict?
Circle is what Facebook would be like, if Steve Jobs invented it.
We strongly advise you to get your Circle account, before somebody else takes your name.
We’re aware of the Limerick 2030 plan as it stands. We would now like to see some concrete leadership in terms of who is going to do what, and when. At what point will the plan be more finely tuned and in the public domain? We need to ensure as a City/County that the spend is well governed and appointments are transparent. @fiannafailparty @jamesjcollins
There seems to be some @Limerick2014 shenanigans going on in terms of job appointments, by all accounts. We hope our councillors will get to the bottom of it. Nice report in the Chronicle @Hayes_Cait. #neverseenthembetter.
A source close to the country ruling people in Ireland this morning told our reporter that “[shur they] often make wee errors like that doing the books like”. And that often-times it’s due to the fact that “most of them have been doing the same jobs for 30 year [sic] or more!”.
Here at #Limerick2030, we’d like to think that our country ruling people know what they’re doing all the time. Seems that we could be sadly unmistaken about being wrong.
