The Ladies from Limerick


The Providence Journal takes another look today at a phenomenon Globe West looked at some time back: people coming from faraway places to shop at the Wrentham Village premium outlets.

A loose-knit group of Irish women -- and a few of their husbands -- have made a tradition out of the trip to Wrentham and other malls. They've dubbed themselves the "Ladies of Limerick," the newspaper reports.

“It just gets bigger every year,” said Marion Frawley, who’s taken part in the annual Thanksgiving weekend shopping trips 19 years running.
