Fáilte Ireland provides a wide range of supports for tourism businesses and attractions throughout the country to help create new experiences and enhance existing ones; extend the season and enhance the skills and business capability of tourism enterprises.   At county and regional level, the regional tourism experience brands provide the overarching context for marketing, enterprise supports and tourism product development.  For County Meath, including the town of Kells, the relevant brand is Ireland’s Ancient East. 

I have asked Fáilte Ireland to respond to the Deputy directly with further detail on specific plans to enhance tourism experience in Kells, County Meath.  Please contact my private office if you have not received a reply within ten working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
