They fundraise for these outings and have parties for everyone to get to know one another. This society is not limited to International students, all students are welcome.

   

 

LGBTA Society

The LGBT society has been running in Mary I for many years, causing outrage in its early stages, over the years it has become just another society.  Whether your gay, lesbian, bi, trans or just curious the society is there for you.  Catering for everyone whether you would like some guidance, or to attend a confidential meeting or just want a damn good night out on the Limerick gay scene this society is for you.  The society assures anonymity and does not engage in ‘outing’ any members. We all understand how difficult it is if you are not sure/not out/or just out - we've all been there!

Last year saw members of the Live Music Soc take over the entire Summerville Building during RAG Week for the Summerville sessions. You don’t have to be Hendrix to join! Beginners are welcome!  A love of music would help though!

   

 

MIDAS
