This week it’s Gone, But Not Forgotten.
Limerick city was designated the Irish City of Culture in 2014. In September the city hosted the Royal De Luxe Street Theatre Company from France and their impressive giant Granny. The Granny walks using a series of mechanical gears which are driven by ropes at either side which are pulled by the male assistants who jump from on high, holding the rope which then causes the gears to move and the granny to walk. So the assistants are working non-stop exhaustively for hours on end as the Granny makes her way around the various selected city sites. Will long live in the memory of those who saw.
