I and my neighbour went to the races
My neighbour and I went to the races
are commonly used. However in the plural I've only ever seen the form:
We and the neighbours went to the races
The other form:
The neighbours and we went to the races
sounds drastically wrong for some reason I can't articulate, but I don't think it violates any grammatical rules. Is My neighbours and we incorrect in this context, or does it seem strange simply because it isn't commonly used?
