first_imgTwitter Limerick city house prices rise 4.9% as time to sell falls RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick county house prices to rise 5% in 2021 Facebook Mortgage payment break for local authority home loan borrowers will be extended by a further three months WhatsApp Linkedin ACTIVISTS took to the street of Limerick on Saturday, February 23, to protest over the growing housing crisis.The recently formed Limerick Housing Action (LHA) group organised a march that gathered at People’s Park and made its way to City Hall on Merchants Quay, where organisers and members of other action groups spoke to the crowd of almost fifty people.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Recent homeless figures have shown that more than 290 people were homeless in Limerick at the end of last year.A spokesperson for the group  said that for many people the housing crisis isn’t about statistics.“Long before the numbers are published in the papers and in the reports, or in the Dáil debates, we’ve already seen them. You’ve seen them on our streets in our homes and on the worried faces of our friends and family.”She said the movement was formed by a “group of concerned community members that came together” with a common goal of supporting those affected by the housing crisis and to “take collective action to demand change”.“I don’t think I’m being too dramatic when I say that probably everyone here is affected by this, the housing crisis or at least know someone who’s affected.”“By coming out today, you have shown that the people in Limerick aren’t going to take it any longer. Underneath it all, we know that there are only two types of people in the housing struggle – the people that profit from it,  and the people who suffer from it.“We also know that there is ultimately more of us than there is of them,” the spokeswoman explained.

Andrews honored as MAC Hermann finalist

first_imgSenior Morgan Andrews was recognized in the top echelon of women’s soccer players on Jan. 6 at the MAC Hermann Trophy banquet. After leading her team to a NCAA championship title, Andrews became the second Trojan athlete to be named as a MAC Hermann finalist.The honor is equivalent to becoming a Heisman finalist in college football. At the start of the season, Andrews was selected for a watch list along with fellow senior Kayla Mills. After finishing the season as the team’s second-highest scorer, Andrews was placed in the top three players in the nation.West Virginia senior Kadeisha Buchanan won the prestigious award, and Stanford senior Andi Sullivan was the third finalist for the award. Buchanan is a regular for the Canadian national team, earning the title of Canadian Women’s Player of the Year and a nomination for the FIFA Ballon d’Or in 2015.Andrews’ selection among this level of competition reflected the growing success of the USC program throughout her time in the program. After transferring from Notre Dame, Andrews became part of the core that led the team to a national championship this year. She scored 24 points and notched four assists on the season, scoring the first goal in the final game against West Virginia.When she first received the nomination, Andrews was adamant that her goals had nothing to do with individual awards. She had one goal, she said — a national championship. Everything else was just a fun add-on.But after securing that ultimate goal, this honor was the final touch on a rollercoaster of a senior year.“It’s the greatest honor any collegiate soccer player can earn,” Andrews said after her nomination. “When you look at the people who have come before, who have won it in the past, it’s pretty incredible to even be considered on that level.”last_img read more
