Shannon has been awarded the European Diploma of the Council of Europe. This great honour for the town was awarded following a presentation by Pat Costello on the achievements of the Twinning between our town and Guingamp. This presentation formed the basis of an application which was submitted by Liam O Connor, Shannon Town Clerk and secretary of the Twinning Association.
News of the award reached us just a few days ago, and this week’s Clare People and Clare Champion newspapers feature articles which details our involvement in and success with, the Prix de ‘Europe and the awarding of the diploma to Shannon. http://www.clarechampion.ie/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=14151:standing-tall-on-the-ideal-of-european-unity&catid=59:shannon&Itemid=56
