The exhibition, which  will be launched by Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan will run until next February.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The wealth of visual records for the city is most significant and especially from the sixteenth century onwards artists and cartographers captured the strategic, economic and architectural importance of the city.Limerick was considered very much within a wider European context and later its architectural embellishment and ambition linked it with tastes in Great Britain and subsequently the scale and breadth of the British Empire.The Museum’s winter exhibition is hosted in conjunction with the University of Limerick’s Glucksman Library and gives visitors an insight into the wealth of holdings, nationally and locally of Limerick visual material from sixteenth century maps to contemporary photography.According to Dr Maguire the exhibition can only touch on what’s available and whet the visitor’s appetite.“The available budget and the limitations of a gallery space only allow us a sampling of the beautiful imagery held in the region itself and in national collections including the National Library of Ireland and the National Gallery of Ireland.“The exhibition especially celebrates the Norton, Leonard, MacAnally and Lysaght collections in our sister institution – the Glucksman Library at the University of Limerick with whom we are sharing this exhibition. Such collections as those accumulated by Fr. John Leonard highlight a deep affection for the city”, he said.The exhibition is open daily and admission is free.

CBA’s Buddy Wleklinski earns 500th coaching victory

first_imgSeveral of Wleklinski’s players were on hand for this game to help him celebrate, though a more formal ceremony will take place next Tuesday prior to the Brothers’ game against Bishop Grimes.For 36 seasons as head coach, Wleklinski has symbolized continuity at the school, from having Ed Leone as his assistant coach for most of his tenure to handling the dual role as the school’s athletic director since 1989.Winning nearly 64 percent of his games and going 500-284 overall, Wleklinski has led CBA to eight sectional titles and the 1997 state Class C championship, and is honored in several ways, including the Greater Syracuse Sports Hall of Fame and the home court that bears his name. And it was there that the Brothers, once 1-4 this season, got to the milestone with its fourth win in five games, even though Wleklinski said he never brought it up with his players until the day of the game against Solvay.The Bearcats arrived at this game 7-2 and sporting a five-game win streak, but was without leading scorer Justin Scott, who was injured earlier in the week in Solvay’s win over Marcellus.Without Scott, the Bearcats managed to hang close for a while, even though CBA bolted out in front helped by Sam Haas hitting four 3-pointers in the first quarter. Haas finished with 17 points.Dan Anderson’s eight points in the second period helped the Brothers build a 35-28 halftime edge, and then CBA got away in the third quarter with a 12-1 run, sparked by Jason Boule, who scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half.Anderson produced a team-high 19 points as CBA pointed ahead to Tuesday’s game against Grimes – where the Cobras’ head coach, Bob McKenney, could get to 600 career wins.The Cobras, even without A.J. Burnett in the lineup,rolled past Chittenango 74-45 last Thursday night to get McKenney to 599 wins.Having beat Buffalo’s Cardinal O’Hara 73-68 earlier that week, Grimes returned to OHSL Liberty division action and built a 32-15 lead on the Bears with stifling defensive pressure.Then it got further away as Byam Mugushu, with a season-high 17 points, was one of four Cobras in double figures. Sylvester Seton had 11 points, with Ian Denton and Joe Wike getting 10 points apiece.Originally, Grimes was set to face Mekeel Christian Saturday, but its cancellation meant that it could happen at CBA just as Wleklinski is honored, a rare instance of two historical markers overlapping into a single night.Manlius-Pebble Hill took a 2-4 record into last Wednesday’s game at Tully and played a superb first half, especially on the defensive end, the Trojans steadily building a 25-17 lead.Yet the Black Knights turned it around with a 20-9 third-quarter push, eventually holding off MPH 55-49 as James Kelly still had 20 points and eight rebounds for the Trojans. Alex Abrams had 12 points, with Shontez Anderson getting nine points and 12 rebounds.MPH lost Friday to Onondaga 64-50, the Trojans dropping to 2-6 overall as Logan Nordman (17 points) and Nate Recor (14 points) led the way for the Tigers. In 1984, the assistant boys varsity basketball coach at Christian Brothers Academy was promoted to the head coaching position at his alma mater. He has stayed there ever since.And on Saturday night, when the Brothers defeated Solvay 67-47, Buddy Wleklinski reached 500 career victories, a mark only a handful of other Section III coaches have reached.“To be around for 500 wins is very fortunate and humbling,” said Wleklinski. “But I haven’t scored a basket or made an assist. The players have done that, so this is humbling.” Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: boys basketballCBAlast_img read more
