Regarding the Sister Cities fiasco with Dingle, I thought that I should give you my two shillings.
I visited Dingle in 2016, and the city folks that I met were very friendly and congenial. Plus, and this is a biggie, I had the best fish and chips at a little pub there that I have ever had anywhere. The ale was pretty good, too.
Bud Bottoms’s dolphin statue was prominent on the waterfront.
All in all, a nice little town. Too bad that all this rancor abounds.
