Mayorstone Quarry Closures

Overnight Closures of Mayorstone Quarry Park

Updated: Thursday 29th October, 2009

With effect from Monday 16th March, 2009 and on foot of representations from local residents, Limerick City Council Parks Department staff have closed Mayorstone Quarry Park overnight. Signage to this effect has been erected at each entrance and exit.

The entrance gates at Coolraine Estate and Merval Drive are now locked approximately 60-75 minutes before sunset, except between mid April and mid June when the latest closing time is 20:00 (8 p.m.). As the park is supervised by Park Rangers operating out of Shelbourne Park, it must be evacuated and closed before Shelbourne Park closes. 

Generally speaking, the park is re-opened at around 08:15 on Mondays to Fridays and 08.15 or 12.15 on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays depending on available resources.

For further information, please contact Limerick City Council's Parks Department:

by telephone on (061) - 407 190,

by fax on (061) - 407 255, or,
