Our Bid. Our Voice. Our Region

Can you feel the temperature rising? Across the Three Sisters region there is a veritable buzz in the air and it's not the hum of drone wasps and worker bees chasing ice cream cones across Waterford, Wexford and Kilkenny.  

We are within days of the decision by the EU’s European Capital of Culture selection panel on awarding the Title of European Capital of Culture 2020 and we look forward to an eclectic day of culture on Wednesday, July 13th,  sharing some of the delights with two members of the panel.

Join the team in the Design Craft Council of Ireland Yard tomorrow (Wednesday) to hear a performance by the “Presentation Convent Choir”. This will be a public event and the bid team would like to invite people to come along and support the Three Sisters 2020 Bid and listen to the choir, at 5.15 sharp.

We look back with pride on the process that created this bid. The planning, the workshops, the consultations, the head scratching, the interpretation, the early mornings and late nights, the worn shoe leather.... all comes down to this announcement and we salute the bid team and everyone who was involved the process. 

 Win or lose......the collaboration has been fantastic and friendships forged across the counties, and the rich kaleidoscope of ideas emanating, will last long after the panel choose  their winner from the three candidates on Friday, July 15th.

Good luck one and all from Invest Kilkenny.
