Honorable Mayor Taylor and Esteemed Council Members:

Prince William and Kate are planning to visit MENLO PARK'S Sister City, Galway, Ireland tomorrow, Thursday, March 5, 2020. This is partly due to Galway being selected as the EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE 2020. During the day they will be visiting various parts of the city. Mayor Michael Cubbard (who is expected to travel to the U.S. next week) will be the host, along with other City Council members, the city manager, etc.

If you happen to be in Galway, Ireland tomorrow, I'll do my best to introduce you to Prince William and Kate Middleton. I'm told they are quite approachable and very much admired. Otherwise, you and your family are very much welcome anytime to enjoy the many activities being offered during this very special year. Menlo Park has connections to Galway, Ireland going back over 150 years with a proud history during that time. For more information, see the website: www.sites.google.com/site/twomenlosisters.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Set for Historic Visit to Galway

Galway City Council is delighted that, as part of their first official visit to Ireland, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Galway City tomorrow, Thursday 5th March.

In what is a landmark year for the city, with the Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture designation, the Duke and Duchess will get a taste of the rich and diverse cultural and artistic talents Galway has become renowned for, as well as a chance to witness Ireland’s sporting traditions. They will meet a range of people, particularly young people, and those working in the creative arts and in the voluntary and charity sectors.

The Mayor of Galway City, Cllr. Mike Cubbard, accompanied by the Deputy Mayor, Cllr. Donal Lyons and the Chief Executive of Galway City Council, Brendan McGrath will meet the Duke and Duchess on Thursday morning to formally welcome them at the start of their visit to Galway City.

The visit has been arranged by the Department of Foreign Affairs and the British Embassy with a significant amount of liaison with An Garda Síochána. Galway City Council has been providing assistance and support in line with our range of services, in advance of the visit to Galway.

Galway City Council asks members of the public to heed the advice and instructions of Gardaí on the day.

Galway City Council very much look forward to welcoming the Duke and Duchess to Galway, for what’s sure to be a historic visit.
