The aim is to use the church as a Local Military Museum commemorating the regiments of Limerick since the siege in 1691 to today. This project will provide a home for a very historically significant collection, which can be preserved and shared with future generations. This museum will be an attraction open and accessible to not just tourists to the region but also the local communities and schools. This in turn will lead to more money circulating in local economies, the preservation, and development of regional identity and more choice for visitors.
- The Former Exchange Wall: This wall as a key feature of Limerick’s historical and tourist district needs to be preserved with and updated information plague and a general cleaning highlighting inscriptions and effects. The wall could be enhanced as an addition to Nicholas Street by removing the stone fill between the Arches allowing light to flow between the grave yards the street.
