Friends How to Join Programme Newsletter
Who we are?
The Friends of the Hunt Museum was formed in 1993 to help promote an interest in and an enjoyment of the Hunt Museum collection. Friends are committed to assisting the Museum in providing a high level of public service through its education programmes, exhibitions and other activities. However, the most valuable asset of the Friends is their energy and enthusiasm in promoting the importance of the Museum and what it means to the cultural life of the Limerick city and region.
The Friends Association is run by a volunteer council which is elected from among its members. The following members were elected for the year 2014-2015:
George Stacpoole, Chairman
Kathleen O'Sullivan, Vice Chairman
Eleanor Reilly, Honorary Treasurer
Eileen Egan, Honorary Secretary.
Hugh Maguire, Director of Hunt Museum
Patricia Haselbeck Flynn
Eileen Hanrahan (co-opted)
