Known to many from her café Chez le Fab, she opened the community and arts café in 2016 with partner Shay Riordan at the location of the former tourist office in Arthur’s Quay Park until it closed at the end of 2018. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Chez le Fab was unique in Limerick offering a dog-friendly café-winebar and venue space, with individual fashion and craft traders invited to sell from stalls inside. Events that took place ranged from music performances and comedy gigs to panel discussions, movie nights, charity events and mini markets. Lesley Anne was a great supporter of local art, craft and design and many of the creative communities in the city used the venue to hold events. In winter 2017 she launched a clothes rail for the homeless with Audrey Ryan at the café’s Arthur’s Quay location.Lesley Anne was a vocal city businesswoman, as well as mental health advocate and went on to be a founding member of The Haven Hub which supports families of people with mental health issues. A bright and colourful character that made an instant impression, she will be remembered by many for her warmth, energy, and enthusiasm, and as someone who made a huge contribution to her city. We offer our sympathies to her partner and boys, family and friends at this difficult time.center_img Print Previous articleNew album in May from Limerick trio Bleeding Heart PigeonsNext articleAnn & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 10 | When it’s all over Olivia O’Sullivanhttps://twitter.com/oliviaos Population of Mid West region increased by more than 3,000 in past year Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?
