Delighted yesterday to welcome Marianne Bolger, the new Irish Ambassador to Jordan , for a informal visit before taking up her new posting in Amman. Marianne was guided through the story of the 800 year old historical connection between Cloughjordan and the Kingdom of Jordan, the ‘Friendship Stone of Jordan’ public sculpture and the Cloughjordan Community Group trip to Jordan in October 2019. This was followed by a tour and refreshments at Cloughjordan House where a stone from the River Jordan was brought back by the returning Knight and used in the 13thC castle construction.
Special thanks to the Community Employment Scheme crew for all their great work to keep our streetscape clean and tidy👍
