Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne is located in north central France in the Île-de-France region, south east of Paris. They are Kilkenny’s oldest twinned-town, with a connection that has lasted over 30 years. It is a beautiful commune on the Loing river with a 12th century fortified square, city gates and old churches. Kilkenny has been delighted to host groups from Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne and share experiences and memories over the years. In 2021 the Mayor of Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne Dikran Zakeossian took part in our virtual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and said “We have experienced great connections for 30 years”. We look forward to welcoming you in person again soon.
