‘Carrigaline Roundabout’ Opened In France

Writes Jim Kelly (Chair)

A group from Carrigaline Twinning Association recently visited our twin town Guidel in Brittany.

The twinning agreement was signed in 1986 making it one of the longest lasting twinnings still active.

To acknowledge the enduring strength and longevity of the friendship between both towns, the Mayor of Guidel decided to rename a roundabout in the town as Carrigaline Roundabout, at one end of Rue Carrigaline.

The cutting of the tape was carried out by the Mayor M. Jo Daniel on 20th June last in the presence of Jim Kelly, chair of Carrigaline Twinning Association, local councillors, the twinning group and a large contingent of Guidelois.

The roundabout, made by the Technical Services Department of the Council, is decorated with three shamrocks in memory of deceased members of Carrigaline Twinning. It also has the 20th anniversary stone with the handshake twinning logo.

If you are in Brittany this summer be sure to visit Guidel and see the Rondpoint Carrigaline yourself.

It is certainly something to be proud about!
