Galway Delegation Visit Chicago and Milwaukee
Mayor of Galway City, Cllr. Mike Cubbard is currently leading a delegation to Galway’s Sister Cities of Chicago and Milwaukee this week.

On Tuesday he attended a reception hosted by the Chicago Galway Sister Cities Committee at which the late Bill Gainer, for many years Chairman of the Chicago Committee, was remembered. Mayor Cubbard presented gifts to Bill’s wife, Geri, and daughter, Nora. Nora led the delegation on a whirlwind tour of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The Mayor also met Dr. Scott Stewart, Executive Director of Millennium Park; Senator Billy Lawless; Michael Amiridis, Chancellor of the University of Illinois and members of the Galway /Chicago Sister City Committee.

The delegation will go on to showcase Galway and Galway 2020 at the Milwaukee Irish Fest later in the week. The visit will strengthen ties and develop connections between Galway and its Sister Cities going forward.
