A group from Castleisland’s twinned town of Bannalec will travel here for the May Bank holiday weekend. Stops are being pulled out in all directions.

“As this year marks the tenth anniversary of the signing of the Twinning Charter it will make their visit that bit more special,” said local committee treasurer and spokesman, John O’Donoghue.

Celebrating the Anniversary

“We are appealing to anyone who was involved in the Twinning over the past ten years and anyone interested in becoming involved to assist us in celebrating this anniversary.

“We would very much appreciate help in organising the visit by way of offering to host our guests and come to the events which will be organised.
