South East’s European Capital Of Culture 2020 Bid

Three Sisters 2020 (2)

The Three Sisters Waterford, Wexford and  Kilkenny officially  launch their website www.threesisters2020.ie for the Bid. Commenting on the launch of the website Michael Quinn the Bid Director said, “We are delighted to launch the official website for the Three Sisters 2020 Bid. Our Bid is from the people  of  three  counties  of  Ireland  and  while  we  are  leading  this  as  a  Bid  team  our approach to the entire Bid is through the people of the South East region and beyond.

The website is an integral part of this, it offers everyone the opportunity to do what we are calling ‘their bit for the bid’. We are asking every person, schoolgoers, communitygroups, individuals, business people, those already involved in arts and culture and more importantly  those  who  feel  they  are  not,  to  come  on-board  and  to  get  involved. The threesisters2020.ie website enables them to do just that through its interactive set-up. I  and  the  Three  Sisters  team  urge  everyone  ‘do  their  bit’.  We  would  like  to  hear everyone’s creative thoughts and even hair-brained ideas for what they would like to see the region create and  look like  for the European Capital of Culture 2020 and to help ensure that the Three Sisters are positioned in the primary spot for the title in Ireland in 2020.”

U.S. Ambassador Visits Kilkenny

Ambassador at Castle

Kilkenny Chamber was delighted to host a visit by his Excellency Kevin O’Malley the U.S Ambassador to Ireland recently.

The Ambassador visited Kilkenny Castle and walked along the Medieval Mile before later addressing a gathering of up to 100 Kilkenny business people at the Chamber event in the Newpark Hotel. There he spoke about the strong and longstanding relationship that exists between Ireland and the U.S. and he reaffirmed his commitment to remove many of the challenges faced by SMEs when exporting to the US market.

“This is good news for SME’s in Ireland” said John Hurley, CEO of Kilkenny Chamber. “The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will address a number of barriers currently faced by SMEs including complex customs procedures and burdensome regulatory compliance.”

The Ambassador was so pleased with the Kilkenny welcome that he promised to pay a return visit in the near future.
