My Department's role in relation to tourism lies in the area of national tourism policy development. It is not directly involved in the development or management of individual tourism projects, such as the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland's Ancient East, or the marketing and promotion of those experience brands. These are operational matters for the Board and Management of Fáilte Ireland.
I am referring the Deputy's question to Fáilte Ireland for direct reply to the Deputy. Please contact my private office if you have not received a reply within ten working days.
