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.

The time is right for Jamal Crawford

first_imgCrawford is coming off a four-year, $21 million deal with the Clippers in which he won a pair of Sixth Man of the Year Awards. In his time with the team he, made 546 3-point shots, the second most in franchise history, while averaging 16.2 points per game, almost exclusively off the bench.And, he’s in line for a raise.With the salary cap set to rise to a record $94 million, teams around the league are flush with cash. Crawford’s annual salary could more than double this summer due to the cap jump.The 53-win Clippers have his “Bird rights,” a provision that allows teams to go over the cap to sign their own players, a mechanism they’ll almost certainly need because of their salary cap situation.Doc Rivers, the Clippers’ president of basketball operations and coach, has said he hopes to re-sign Crawford. But while Crawford’s had success in Los Angeles, and it’s his first choice, he is no lock to stay. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Crawford, who does have a meeting scheduled with the Clippers, is also drawing interest from a number of teams in search of a scoring guard. Crawford is expected to receive interest from the New York Knicks, the Miami Heat, the Toronto Raptors, the Dallas Mavericks, the Orlando Magic and the Brooklyn Nets in addition to the Clippers.“I definitely have to keep an open mind and see what’s out there,” Crawford said. “That’s why you’re in this position. My preference, like I’ve said from the get go, is to go back to the Clippers. But, I’m definitely very, very open-minded about the whole free-agency process.”This is where the juggling comes in.Crawford can stay in Los Angeles, make the Clippers the place he’s played the bulk of his career, playing for an owner and coach with whom he has strong relationships. He could move back to New York and Madison Square Garden, his favorite place to play. He could take on a bigger leadership role on a young team or try to help a contender get over the hump.It’s all in play.“It doesn’t have to be a team that’s a contender. I don’t want to go to a team that’s only won a few amount of games, but it doesn’t have to be a contender,” he said. “At the end of the day, only one team wins. You want to put yourself in the best position to try and win.”Crawford, who turned 36 in March, said he doesn’t think his age will limit his options on the free-agent market.“I’ve been blessed enough where all the rules that come with age don’t apply to me,” he said. “People were saying I was old at 32. Look at what I’ve done the past four years.“… I’m so excited about this year. It’ll be one of my best years; I’m sure of it.”center_img Family. Friends. Money. Legacy. Happiness.It’s not everyday that so many of life’s most important things stand to be impacted by one decision, but, that’s exactly where Jamal Crawford finds himself.Less than a week from the official beginning of free agency, Crawford is excited, but understandably anxious, to be juggling all of those things as he gets ready to reap the rewards from a massive influx of money into the NBA.“The last time I was a free agent, the year before was a lockout season and teams were still acting cautiously with their finances,” Crawford said in a phone interview Monday. “This year, with so many teams having cap space and the players available, I think it’s a great time to be a free agent.”last_img read more
