HUNDREDS of people attended a vigil in Limerick to show their solidarity with the people of Ukraine.The event, which took place outside City Hall at Merchant’s Quay was organised by Labour councillors given the Russian invasion which began nearly a week ago.

The Mayor of Limerick, Cllr Daniel Butler, was one of those who spoke and many of those who attended the vigil were carrying Ukrainian flags and posters with a variety of messages calling for an end to the invasion.

Ukraine Crisis 

Intensifying hostilities in Ukraine pose an immediate threat to the lives and wellbeing of the country’s 7.5 million children. 

Children living in Eastern Ukraine have already endured eight years of hostilities, leaving them with profound and lasting emotional and physical damage. This trauma will now be spread to more innocent children, helpless victims of this conflict.

The children of Ukraine need help now. 

UNICEF is working to deliver life-saving aid. Please donate to Ukraine now and protect children living in conflict.
