Racism and discrimination in Limerick?

Limerick Unplugged parts 1 and 2:

"Two University of Limerick students Matthew Organ and Daniel Murphy decide to do a video project on the causes of racism and discrimination in Limerick today,

In their quest to seek the truth they uncover some interesting characters who paint a very different picture on the subject rather than the one found in the mainstream press.
I met Frances Murphy, one of the stars, while being a movie extra on Triage.

I don't know if it's accurate know it's not a true reflection, it being a college mockumentary, but is it funny? Maybe the lovely Maz, The Limerick Blogger, Bock, Alexia or Laura could tell me more?



  1. I can't vouch for the accuracy but that scene with Jerry Flannery sure is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. And it's all set around UL which was my home for four years.

  2. Of course it is a skit. do you really believe a councillor would have attitudes like that? he also has a fictitious name.

  3. It's a piss-take. Concerning racism, what race did you have in mind?

  4. Thanks for the comments all :)

    @maz - that scene is one of my favourites too. The area looks nice.

    @Squid - Welcome to the blog. Honour to have you here Sir! I did get the fact it was a skit - I just wondered was it a funny one...

    @Bock - howdy sir. I was thinking of the 3 mile race away from the scobies, which is becoming a particular favourite of mine. There's also the race for the bus, the race out of the office on warm evenings and the damn human race, which I tire of very easily. Bugger all I can do about that though!
