Written answers (Question to Transport)

As set out in the Tourism Action Plan 2019-20211, lengthening the season is an essential part of developing a sustainable tourism industry into the future.  Both tourism agencies, Fáilte Ireland and Tourism Ireland are very focussed on increasing the seasonal spread of tourism across the country.

I have asked both agencies to reply directly to the Deputy with further information on this matter. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
