OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Cashel Association of Friends of Europe was founded in January 2015. So at this time we are very new members to this Association across Europe!

Cashel (now amalgamated to Cashel-TipperaryMunicipality) has been a member of the Charter of European Rural Communities since it started in 1989. Cashel-Tipperary Municipality requested we establish a Friends of Europe association. We are 1795560_445621422255784_1398072305650744215_nnow very proud to have this representation to the European Charter firmly within our community and by our citizens.

The committee of the Friends meet once a month, to discuss and make decisions for the Cashel’s citizen representation to the European Charter. Our Mayor and some municipality councillors also attend these meetings which demonstrate the importance of the Association for Cashel-Tipperary in the European Charter. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Our members, including out committee meet three to four times each year and we have our AGM each January to elect members to the committee. We:

  • promote all aspects of the Charter in our community
  • provide delegates to European Charter meetings
  • celebrate Europe Day on 9th May
  • welcome our Friends from the other associations across Europe
  • seek to assist in any exchange programmes, such as with schools, sports clubs, cultural programmes, festivals, and so on
  • provide host families for visiting members of the European Charter.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFrom next year we hope to create a new tradition in Cashel. For this we wish each year to have an entry in Cashel St. Patrick’s Day Parade (17th March) – our National Day. For this we plan to send an invitation to our fellow Charter towns across Europe and invite our Friends to participate and hopefully they will wear their traditional costume for the day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe also plan in the future to make visits to our Charter neighbours in Europe. So you soon in Europe!
