According to the Gaffney Ledger, Mayor Henry Jolley will speak at a ceremony in Granard, Ireland over the weekend. The city will spend about $1,600 on the trip.

Granard is the birthplace of Michael Gaffney who left Ireland in the 1800s and helped settle Gaffney in 1804.

The mayor wasn't available for comment, and city administrator James Taylor didn't return calls seeking comment.
