Killarney to twin with the Czech republic for accession day celebrations.

A community arts group in Knocknagoshel has been chosen to work with a Polish street theatre company as part of the cultural programme to mark the expansion of the EU. 10 new countries will join the EU in May and a huge programme of cultural activities is planned in communities across the country. This includes the twinning of Killarney with the Czech Republic for accession day celebrations. The Polish company is to send a number of artists to create a piece of street theatre for the Samhlaiocht Easter Parade. The Polish group will work closely with Mindana, the artists behind the tunnel of terror in Knocknagoshel. It`s also hoped they will participate in the accession day celebrations.
