Each year since 1985 the European Union has designated one or more cities /regions as a European Capital of Culture. Chosen cities and their regions are expected to present an innovative year long cultural programme that highlights the richness and diversity of cultures in Europe. Galway competed with Dublin, Limerick and the Three Sisters (Wexford, Waterford and Kilkenny) to win the designation for 2020.
