County Clare recently joined Cities and Counties from the USA and Ireland at the Sister Cities Summit in Croke Park, Dublin.

The Summit, the first of its kind in the world, identified projects and actions that cities can take together to improve business, education and social justice.

It was attended by some 200 US city mayors, business, education and youth leaders from many of the sixty United States cities that are twinned with Irish local authorities.

The Summit, which was addressed by President Michael D. Higgins, marked the centenary of 1916 and also the 60th anniversary of the establishment of Sister Cities International by President Eisenhower.

County Clare was represented by Cathaoirleach Cllr. James Breen and Gerard Dollard, Director of Services and Interim Chief Executive.
