One small step for Twilight, one giant leap for Kilkenny’s Youth

Twilight Community Group continues to grow year on year in Kilkenny, Ireland and across the European Union. On September 22, 2023 the, forward-looking group, agreed an accord with Beclean in Romania. This, and the other agreements the Charity has with other European Municipal districts are important for the youth, young adults, citizens and business in Kilkenny City. After all Twilight are a Kilkenny organization, and their aims are to offer opportunities for all In Kilkenny including highlighting tourism and Business opportunities.

This agreement with Beclean now offers the youth and young adults of Kilkenny, the opportunity to travel to Beclean for one week to a fortnight and experience the culture and community activities. By experience other cultures, history and seeing the heritage venues will expand these citizens of Kilkenny and this in turn expands our understanding of cooperation and the values of European Solidarity. For our youth it allows them to immerse themselves into another European City and experience their culture and witness the similarities and differences between Kilkenny, and in this case Beclean.
