The Holyhead and Dun Laoghaire Link
The Holyhead and Dun Laoghaire Link worked over many years to bring together the peoples of both port towns, and adjoining areas. Its objective was to promote and facilitate co-operation between the people and communities of Dun Loaoghaire and area, and Holyhead and district, in all aspects of life including cultural, community development, educational, sporting, maritime, policing, environmental, business, and economic opportunities.
The Link was strictly non-party political, non-sectarian, and voluntary. The Link met alternatively in Holyhead and Dun Laoghaire. It acted as a catalyst in bringing together people and organisations. The Link encouraged and co-operated with projects which jointly involved people and organisations from Wales and Ireland, Membership was open to individuals and organisations who accepted the rules and objectives of the Link and paid an annual subscription.
EU Interreg funding was secured by the Link in the past to support its activities. Examples of past Link activities and projects are shown below:-
