They have undertaken a prodigious amount of work through the years including developing social housing, providing great sporting facilities, building an enterprise centre and many other initiatives. This, above all, is a caring community with a wonderful cohort of young people justifiably and demonstrably proud of their place”.They went on to describe Liskennett Farm as a “truly inspiring initiative”.Representatives from Liskennett Farm – St Joseph’s Foundation with Dr Christopher Moran, chairman Co-operation Ireland, Tom Dowling, chairman of the Pride of Place Committee, George Jones, chairman IPB, and Mayor of Limerick, Cllr Kieran O’Hanlon.“Liskennett Farm demonstrated what can be achieved with attention to detail, single mindedness and dedication in delivering a service that is making a real difference.
