It’s a national holiday that’s celebrated in more countries than any other. It’s the day that gets the whole world to think green and go green. But if you really want to get a piece of the party, you’ve got to come to Sixmilebridge St. Patricks Day Parade.
Sixmilebridge on St Patrick’s Day is unlike anywhere else in the world.The parade lead by the Tulla pipe band and followed by a local craft fair in Kearneys Coal Yard with Crafters, Food and Entertainment.
A delegation from the Sixmilebridge-Kilmurry Twinning committee are in Nord-Sur-Erdre in the Loire-Atlantique department of western France from August 25th to 29th. They were invited after the completion of a successful preliminary visit by a delegation from Nord-Sur-Erdre who visited Sixmilebridge-Kilmurry in May of this year.
They will be attending the celebrations of Nord-Sur-Erdre’s tenth anniversary of successful twinning with Piedrabuena, Spain and will see first hand evidence of the success of a strong twinning partnership. They will get to meet key people from both sides and learn how to further develop the project here at home.
The delegation travelling on August 25th is being led by Councillor John Crowe, Ger McErlain (Chairman), Tony Kinnane (Secretary) and committee members Seán Ward, Seán Devanny, John Nihill, Christopher Carey, Monica and John Doyle. The aim of this trip is to further explore twinning possibilities in the areas of sport, education, music, culture and trade. This is another milestone in this Irish-French twinning partnership.
