Limerick's blessing for a new beginning

Amid a wave of optimism, a vast cross-section of Irish life gathered yesterday in two of the country's most deprived suburbs to learn of the biggest redevelopment of socially deprived areas ever undertaken here.

The Limerick neighbourhoods of Moyross and Southill have known some dark days, but President Mary McAleese yesterday told residents of her hopes for a "truly better future".

The plan is to make the two communities, along with Ballinacurra-Weston and St Mary's Park, among the most vibrant in the country.
