Tweasure Hunt: A stroll through Limerick city in search of American connections

As part of the 4th of July celebrations in Limerick initiated by the Limerick Local Heroes, we are organising a new Tweasure Hunt on Sunday, 8 July 2012, from 11:00 to 13:30.

The meeting (as well as finish) point is the Zest Café by People’s Park at 11am. This way, you’ll get the opportunity to join the picnic taking place in People’s Park on your return from the “hunt”.

This family-friendly event will be a great opportunity to rediscover our city while looking for names, places and stories that connect Limerick to the U.S.A.

The teams will be made of 2-5 people and each team will need a smartphone  and a Twitter account. Join us even if you don’t have any of these – we’ll find you a team to join on the day!

The participants will be given a map and a set of tasks that will involve finding particular historical plaques, buildings and other places and taking photos, eliciting stories from American “ambassadors” they can meet in the city, and contributing to bring these connections into public awareness.

The event is organised by a team of volunteers. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment here!

Looking forward to seeing you there on Sunday the 8th of July!
