About Limerick & Tipperary Samaritans

The Limerick and Tipperary Samaritans provide emotional support round the clock for anyone experiencing feelings of distress or despair. We provide a safe space to talk about how you are feeling. As volunteers we’re ordinary people, and we keep all conversations private. 

As well as being available to talk on the phone at any time, visitors are also welcome to our Centre on Barrington St. in Limerick 365 days a year. You don't need an appointment and the service is completely free of charge.

As well as answering telephone calls, emails and texts, and spending time with people who call in, we are also engaged with the community outside the branch.  Our outreach work includes working with schools, the local prison and other organisations to help people in distress and to make sure that people are aware of our service.

As a branch we are always looking for support locally so that we can provide a safe place for people to be themselves and to talk to us confidentially about whatever might be troubling them.

Become a Samaritans Volunteer

So many people have it in them to be a Samaritans volunteer.

To touch another person's life when it really matters, by helping them directly, or by keeping our branches running, is a rare gift.
