Registration open for Team Limerick Clean-Up

Registration is now open for the sixth edition of Team Limerick Clean-Up TLC, due to take place on Good Friday, 10th April, across Limerick City and County. Celebrating another great year for the much-loved community event, volunteers are urged to sign up early at www.teamlimerickcleanup.ie and join the 20,000 volunteers expected to once again show their support for their locality.

Today, GAA President John Horan and TLC Ambassador, Paul OConnell launched TLC6 in the LIT Gaelic Grounds. He was joined by members from underage hurling and football teams, from Kildimo-Pallaskenry GAA Club and St. Patricks GAA Club.

This year, TLC is celebrating how far the event has come since 2015, and the amount of litter that has been collected by the army of volunteers that take part. Sponsored by the JP McManus Benevolent Fund, the event has seen over 400 tonnes of litter gathered from the streets by volunteers and event partner Mr. Binman since inception in 2015. Last years record-breaking participation figures exceeded 20,000 volunteers, with over 600 groups from across the county. 470 of these held tea and coffee gatherings to celebrate.

In addition to encouraging volunteer participation in the clean-up, TLC is encouraging sports fans attending matches throughout the city and county to keep their stadia tidy and pick up any litter they come across. The Gaelic Grounds and Thomond Park are perfect examples of venues where thousands of people congregate at one time and where litter can get dropped.

Commenting on Team Limerick Clean-Up 6, GAA President John Horan said; Team limerick Clean-Up has been going from strength to strength over the last six years. It is a wonderful community event which brings groups from every walk of life together for one cause. I am honoured to be here today to launch this years edition of TLC. I would encourage everyone to sign up this year, get involved and continue the good work

JP McManus, Team Limerick Clean-Up Sponsor reflected on the last five years; It is very evident how much pride our passionate Limerick people have for their county and the environment. Team Limerick Clean-Up has come a long way since the early days and is now very much in the minds of volunteers year-round.

Indeed, TLCs year-round initiatives feature a strong focus on sustainability. Hundreds of specially-designed, Paul OConnell-signed reusable coffee cups have already been distributed and more will be offered on TLCs social media channels later in the year, along with further sustainability enterprises.

Team Limerick Clean-Up is an initiative sponsored by the JP McManus Benevolent Fund and supported by Limerick City and County Council. Endorsed by Paul OConnell, the official partners include Mr Binman, The Limerick Leader, the Limerick Post and Limericks Live95.
