P J O’Hanlon, Cathaoirleach of Monaghan Co Council, and Peadar Morgan of the Clontibret Wildlife Centre are pictured with a group of Canadian visitors from Peterborough, Ontario who visited the Clontibret facility yesterday, Wednesday as part of their current tour of Ireland.

The group, who were greeted on arrival by two pipers from the local O’Neill Pipe Band, expressed delight at the attractions of the wildlife centre and spoke in glowing terms of their time in Co Monaghan, where they based themselves at the Four Seasons Hotel.

The Co Council Cathaoirleach welcomed the Canadian party to the county, stating how pleased he was that they had chosen Monaghan as part of their itinerary and in so doing had helped to strengthen further the strong bonds already existing between their homeland and the “county of the little hills”, which enjoys formal twinning links with Prince Edward Island and Miramichi.

Yesterday evening the Peterborough party were welcomed at the Sliabh Beagh Centre in Knockatallon where they enjoyed a meal and an evening of entertainment in the company of members of the local community and several local councillors.

The visitors will enjoy a variety of the country’s other tourism attractions over the remaining nine days of their stay in Ireland.
