NEWPORT NEWS- Sister Cities of Newport News (SCNN) has identified Carrigaline, County Cork, Ireland, as its newest prospective Sister City, thanks to a shared history of Irish settlers who helped establish Newport News.
Carrigaline has established a “Twinning Committee” that manages its international partnerships. Recently, the two organizations have examined connections between both citizens and government officials and identified areas where an official “Sister City” partnership could be beneficial, including cultural programs, youth programs, and business exchanges.
Carrigaline and SCNN are working with Newport News City Council to finalize the agreement.
Candidates interested in volunteering on the Carrigaline Committee, are asked to contact SCNN at email@example.com.
