To have this and the Ryder Cup 2026 announced for Limerick on the same day is incredible. It shows where the city, county and region is headed.”“This huge injection of private investment in retail is an important signal of market confidence and ongoing work to revitalise Limerick city centre. We are powering ahead in so many respects as we develop a thriving urban experience for people who live in, work and visit Limerick.“The retail community, in particular, welcome a boost exactly like this to help attract more people from Limerick and neighbouring counties into the city,” she addedMayor Michael Sheahan said that along with all the other plans for Limerick, the multi-million euro investment by Tiernan Properties would help revitalise the city centre.”“Confirmation that Marks and Spencer is to be the anchor tenant will see the company open its very first store in the mid-west region. It has been a long time coming and I am delighted that such a sought after retailer is opening a store here,” Mayor Sheahan concluded.

Tracy Domagala won the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified main event at Jamestown Speedway’s 45th annual Stampede. (Photo by Cody Papke)JAMESTOWN, N.D. (Oct. 15) – Tracy Domagala won’t just return to Jamestown Speedway next fall to defend his Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified Stampede title.He’ll come back to buy a souvenir sweatshirt … the one with his name listed among the winners of the prestigious event.Domagala earned $2,000 along with a spot on the ballot for the 2017 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.“This has to be one of the biggest events in the three-state area,” Domagala said. “The trophy and the money are great but having your name on the sweatshirt for the rest of your life is really special.”Fifty-two IMCA Modified drivers vied at the 45th annual Stampede. Domagala, whose best finish in three starts this season at Jamestown was 11th, started ninth in the main event.“We knew we had a pretty tough row to hoe but we’ve been figuring some stuff out with this new Taylor Chassis,” he said. “I thought if I stuck on the bottom that maybe it would come in. Around lap 15 I got next to the leader (Tyler Hall) and ran with him side-by-side for a few laps.”“After I cleared him, with about 10 laps left, I stayed on the bottom,” Domagala continued. “From where I started I had thought a top five finish would be a good goal. Winning this race is a pretty big deal.”Hall, 15th starting Jason Wolla, Mike Greseth and Mark Dahl rounded out the top five.The Stampede was rescheduled from the final weekend of the point season due to inclement weather. Ryan Schroeder topped the $500 to win race for non-feature qualifiers.Feature results – 1. Tracy Domagala; 2. Tyler Hall; 3. Jason Wolla; 4. Mike Greseth; 5. Mark Dahl; 6. John Corell; 7.
