The Moyle – Ballinasloe link is said to be the oldest north-south twinning in Ireland, going back to the 1970’s. Ballinasloe, with a population of 6,500, is the second largest town in County Galway and is a prosperous and expanding commercial/industrial centre for East Galway. Every October, Ballinasloe is host to one of Europe's oldest and largest Horse Fairs, dating back to the 1700's. This annual event attracts up to 100,000 visitors from all over the world, with many returning to the town year after year
Moyle District Council has been twinned with Pourrières since 1998. Pourrières is a small town in the Département of Var, in the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. It has a population of 4,500. Situated in the heart of the rosé wine-growing area of Provence and close to historic Aix-en-Provence, the town has history and traditions going back to the Roman era.
The Association facilitates exchange visits with its twin towns, runs French-themed events and programmes in Moyle, advises the District Council on twinning matters
Residents of Moyle or those who work in the Council area are encouraged to join the Association. For a modest annual subscription, members have regular events and opportunities to host visits from our twin towns as well to visit Pourrières and Ballinasloe.
