  • Twinning helps to develop a better understanding of other nationalities and cultures. In addition to educational, cultural and sporting exchanges, partnerships with international communities have led to lifelong friendships, and to business exchanges and commercial opportunities.

    County Wicklow and its towns have partnerships with towns and cities in France, Germany, United States, and Wales. County Wicklow has also taken the first steps towards forming a "Friendship Agreement" with Hainan Province in China. Through its partnerships and international friendships, the council have developed a fantastic network of Wicklow Ambassadors around the globe.

    Over the course of St. Patrick's Weekend, there were visitors from a number of groups representing the partner towns and cities. The Mayor of Eichenzell ( twinned with Wicklow Town) attended with a marching band and took part in the Greystones and Wicklow parades. Representatives from Würzburg (twinned with Bray and County Wicklow), came on a private visit.
