However, chairman of the Market Trustees Cllr Michael Sheehan, alleged that he had not been told that the wedding would be shown as part of the event.“At no stage was it suggested that a big screen be brought in to show the Royal Wedding”, he told the Limerick Post.“I discussed it with David O’Brien, market manager, and we decided that it was not logistically possible.“Stall holders will be setting up from 9.30am and the market doesn’t open to the public until 11.30am. The wedding was advertised to be shown from 10.30am.“There was a misunderstanding of the enormity of the logistics involved”.Mayor Maria Byrne said that it would take from the event to remove the wedding.“They are only showing it so people can see the style at the wedding.“There are 20 businesses showcasing their wares and it is a positive event.“If the wedding isn’t shown people will probably stay at home”.
