The visit of the high powered Norman delegation to New Ross, led by Regional President Herve Morin in late June, was highly significant, according to Senator Malcolm Byrne.

"I’ve been working for a while with Tourism Ireland and Wexford County Council on how we can establish stronger links. In addition to the tourism potential with all the additional ferry routes to France from Rosslare, we also need to explore educational and trade links.”

He said a particular focus is on the development of school exchanges between Northern France and Southeast Ireland.

“The dinner and exchange at the Dunbrody last Friday night week has, I believe, the potential to be one of the most significant events in growing an important European relationship.”
