Mayors and the Cultural Life of Limerick

As first citizens of Limerick, the Mayors often played a central role in the cultural life of the City. Some of them, such as Maurice Lenihan, Jim Kemmy and Frank Prendergast were writers and historians. Other Mayors were related to major figures in the arts such as Joseph O'Mara. A few of them such as George Clancy featured in major literary works.
