The aim of this tweasure hunt is primarily to have fun but also to uncover some of Limerick City’s fascinating history and hidden treasures.
How do we gain points ?
Each team will be given a set of instructions with a list of quests and challenges each scoring different points. This will involve finding places, talking to people, taking photographs, being creative and tweeting. The winner of this game will be the group who amasses the most points. Your prize for winning will be being crowned inaugural Tweasure Hunt 2012 Champions!

Besides the fun and the learning experience, we’re up to something good: we will be trying to update and enrich the list of Limerick plaques at Open Plaques.Open Plaques is a community-based project started in 2009 which documents, catalogues and promotes commemorative plaques installed on buildings and other public landmarks. It is ‘the museum of the street’.
Their list of Limerick plaques , originating in a list received from the Limerick Civic Trust, needs your contribution: photos of plaques, updating the list for plaques that are gone or newly erected plaques and adding historical information.This is not only a matter for a Sunday Tweasure Hunt – we can all contribute to this, anytime, anywhere we discover a hidden gem. That’s why crowdsourcing is so great:) You can find more instructions here.
