Chandler-Tullamore Sister Cities

About Us

Chandler, Arizona

Chandler is located in the East Valley, in the southeast part of the  Greater Phoenix area. It was named for a veterinarian, Dr. A. J.  Chandler, who settled in the area in 1891. The town of Chandler began in  1912, with the opening of the Hotel San Marcos in 1913. In 1920 the  Town of Chandler incorporated, with Dr. Chandler as its first Mayor.  The City of Chandler has worked diligently to make the downtown area a  dining and entertainment destination, and their efforts are paying off  as boutique shops, art spaces and eclectic cafes have steadily increased  their presence. The  downtown storefronts have been restored to a  modern version of their original  turn-of-the-century look, and the  plaza has been redesigned and named after the  City's founder. The  Center for the Arts, new parks, restaurants and retail  centers mark an  exciting future for the City. 

Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland

Located in  the Midlands of Ireland, Tullamore boasts a unique  geographic location. The Slieve Bloom Mountains lie to the south, while  north of the town are the Arden Hills, a gravel ridge which is a product  of the Ice Age. The boglands, for which this part of County Offaly is  known, lie to the east and west. Beyond the boglands on the easter side  lies Croghan Hill, an extinct volcano. The River Shannon flows to the  southwest of the town, while the town itself is divided by the Tullamore  River.

The capital town of Offaly and the powerhouse of the  Country, Tullamore has a population of 250,000 serbving a 30-mile  radious. Tullamore is the administrative capital of County Offaly, and  is linked with the main cities through excellent road, rail and  telecommunication networks.
