(1) On the coming into operation of this order, all lands that, immediately before that day, were vested in the Agency and all rights, powers and privileges relating to or connected with such lands shall, without any conveyance or assignment, stand vested in Limerick City Council for all the estate or interest therein that, immediately before the coming into operation of this order, were vested in the Agency, but subject to all trusts and equities affecting the lands continuing to subsist and being capable of being performed.
(2) On the coming into operation of this order all property (other than land), including choses-in-action, that immediately before that day, was vested in the Agency shall stand vested in Limerick City Council without any assignment.
(3) Every chose-in-action vested in Limerick City Council by virtue of paragraph(2) may, on and from the coming into operation of this order, be sued on, recovered or enforced by Limerick City Council in its own name, and it shall not be necessary for Limerick City Council, or the Agency, to give notice to any person bound by the chose-in-action of the vesting effected by that paragraph.
Transfer of rights and liabilities, and continuation of leases, licences and permissions granted by the Agency
5. (1) All rights and liabilities of the Agency arising by virtue of any contract or commitment (expressed or implied) entered into by it before the coming into operation of this order shall on that day stand transferred to Limerick City Council.

6. (1) A claim in respect of any loss or injury alleged to have been suffered by any person arising out of the performance before the coming into operation of this order of the functions assigned to Limerick City Council by or under this Order shall after that day, lie against Limerick City Council and not against the Agency.
