As Limerick prepares to become the National City of Culture for 2014, we feel that this event is a perfect combination of the rich history that is present in our city and attached with the Federation of Gay Games.”Limerick recently played host to a delegation of FGG site inspectors who visited the proposed venues to decide if Limerick should be chosen as the host city of the 2018 Gay Games.If the Limerick bid is successful, The White House bar is the proposed venue for the Poetry Slam event which will form part of the Gay Games’ range of cultural activities.
