Commissioners Honor Ballina As Sister City

The Lackawanna County Commissioners presented a proclamation to visitors from Ballina, County Mayo, Ireland in recognition of the Sister City program. Initiated in 1991 by the late P.J. Downey, Ballina’s Lord Mayor, annual members of his family and friends make the journey to Lackawanna County to enjoy the festivities our community has in honor of St. Patrick.
