Ennis and Langenfeld on the ball

A trip to Cusack Park to watch Cratloe beat Crusheen in the Clare county senior hurling final was among the highlights of a three-day visit to Ennis by a group from Langenfeld in Germany.

The group, comprising four students and their leader, Matthias Beck, were hosted by Clare County Council’s Twinning Committee as part of the Ennis-Langenfeld Twinning Programme for 2014.

Ennis and Langenfeld were officially twinned earlier this year on St. Patrick’s Day, when the Mayors of both locations signed a Twinning Charter. Since and before this, numerous sporting, educational, political and cultural exchanges have taken place.

During their trip to Ennis and Clare at the weekend, the German group also visited the Cliffs of Moher, the Clare Family Resource Centre and Áras Contae an Chláir, where they met with a number of staff from Clare County Council. The group also enjoyed a private walking tour of Ennis.

Chairperson of the Twinning Committee, Councillor Michael Begley acknowledged that twinning is an important tool in developing links with other locations to foster and promote tourism, economic and cultural development, all of which is economically beneficial to the county.

“I look forward to the outcome of the various cultural and community exchanges between the towns over the coming months and years as both locations seek to build further on the links that have already been established,” he added.
