etc have exchanged visits on what is one of the longest and most
successful twinning links in Ireland.
Crozon, is a small coastal town with a rugged coastline, great beaches, sports clubs and friendly people. Within 15km there are picturesque fishing ports and the famous medieval village of Locronan with its many connections to Ireland is nearby.

The group will travel from 19th – 26th May 2018 via Ferry from Cork to Roscoff and will be accommodated with host families or in hotels (at own cost), or you could like some travellers, rent a holiday home for the duration. Some activities will be organised in Crozon for the visitors from Sligo and also there will be get togethers in local pubs each night.
