The Killarney Town Twinning Association announced this week that Killarney is set to be twinned with Scottsdale in Arizona.

It is the fifth US city to join the list that now includes Concord and Myrtle Beach in North Carolina, Cooper City in Florida, and Springfield, Illinois.

Killarney is also twinned with several European cities including St Avertin in France, Pleinfeld in Germany, Staffanstorp in Sweden and Kendal in the UK.

Killarney Town Twinning Association chairman Sean Counihan acknowledged that there may be too many on the list.

“Once this pandemic is over we hope to sit down with elected representatives and management [of Killarney Municipal District] to review the active and non-active members of our twin towns and cities links,” he said.
