Mayor takes a leaf from Arnie’s book

THE Mayor of Limerick is taking a lead from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the actor turned Californian governor, on how to get his message across.

Like the hulky governor, Cllr Diarmuid Scully will give weekly broadcasts on the internet, called podcasts.

Mr Scully said: “A podcast is a sound recording broadcast on the internet, which can be downloaded and played on a computer or iPod. I will be making a podcast each week on matters of importance to the city of Limerick.”

He said his first podcast will deal with the issue of the proposed extension of the city’s boundary.

“The constricted nature of the city boundary and the division of Limerick city into three jurisdictions is the single most important issue facing this city and was the obvious choice for the first podcast.”
