Bussing it on Culture Night - Bus Route and approx times

As you may know SpiritStore is working with the InkStorm writers once again to bring live poetry writing to you for Culture Night with our Poetry Depot which is mobile this year.  InkStorm Poets, Dave Rock, Lisa Allen, Micheal Kearney and Deirdre Maria Sullivan will be on board a large red double decker, open top bus with pen in hand ready to meet you, chat and write for you.
The Red Viking Tour bus in Limerick city is our Poetry Depot venue for Culture Night.  It's the hop-on hop-off tour bus which you may have seen transporting people through the streets of Limerick for the past two years.  Pat is our bus driver for the night, he's a fountain of information, a real expert on the cultural treasures of Limerick. 
We've posted the bus route he'll take us on, the route is designed to drive close by as many of the venues open to you Limerick wanders for Culture Night.  We tour the city twice, once starting at City Hall at 6pm and again at 7.30pm. So basically, you just hop-on and off at the different stops as you want, or stay on board that little bit longer and commission a poem...
