THE Italian town of Nettuno which is twinned with Ardee, will have a visiting delegation over for St Patrick’s Day.
This annual visit was established a few years ago and Ardee Town Council are putting together an itenary for their visitors.
In 2011 Ardee Town Council held a civic reception for the Netunno delegation.
The link has established cultural, social and economic ties that will develop over the years.
Louth Local Authorities have been involved with these international relationships and the former county manager Conn Murray paid tribute to the work done by members of Ardee Town council and officials who established the link with their Italian colleagues.
Deputy Seamus Kirk said the twinning ceremony was taking place at a time when the Louth economic forum was promoting Louth tourism and heritage, and that Ardee had an important part to play in this development.
He was confident that the twinning with Nettuno would establish great links between our two cultures.
The Netunno guests usually take part in the town’s wonderful St Patrick’s Day Parade.
