Council remains dedicated to continuing cultural partnership created by Three Sisters Bid

2016-07-15_1118

Members of Waterford City and County Council toady acknowledged the hard and work and dedication of the Three Sisters Bid team who were unsuccessful in their bid for European Capital of Culture (ECoC) 2020.

They also congratulated Galway on their success and wished them all the best in 2020.

The Three Sisters region (Waterford, Wexford and Kilkenny) formed an historic partnership in a bid to win the European Capital of Culture 2020. It is the first time in the 31 year history of the European Union’s cultural competition that three counties have united together as equal partners to bid for the title. The unique partnership offers enormous potential through the implementation of a Regional Cultural Strategy, which the three councils unanimously adopted in May this year.

The European selection panel today awarded the ECoC 2020 title to Galway, and despite this disappointing news, the Three Sisters Region is looking forward to a new and exciting future.
