Written answers (Question to Tourism)

Funding for the regional cooperative market access scheme is allocated to Tourism Ireland under the Tourism Marketing Fund. The funding available had been doubled this year and €2,500,000 had been allocated to the scheme prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, using the 2020 allocation as a base, a 100% increase would cost a further €2,500,000 on a full year basis and increase the fund to €5,000,000.
