University Of Limerick Purchase City Centre Dunnes Stores For €8 Million

The University of Limerick have announced the purchase of a Dunnes Stores site in the centre of Limerick city however. Rather than using the facility as a training ground for arts students to gain some valuable hands-on experience stacking shelves before their graduation into the real world, the building has been vacant and will be renovated.

The UL President, Dr. Des Fitzgerald said of the plans, "I am very happy to have the full support of the UL Governing Authority to purchase the vacant Dunnes Stores site at Sarsfield Bridge."

"It is fitting that UL’s presence in the city will be on the waterfront, mirroring our magnificent riverside campus just four kilometres away."


The site has been purchased to create a new riverside city centre campus". Dr. Des Fitzgerald added that "it will allow for the further development of existing collaborations with the practitioner base in business, law, education, health and the growing number of technology companies."

The exact specifics of the campus that will be build on the site have yet to be announced.
