Brexit Taskforce Meets

The Tourism Ireland Brexit Taskforce met  with leading players from the UK and Irish tourism industry. 
Commenting on the meeting in a Facebook post, ceo Niall Gibbons said:

Risks abound for tourism in areas like  aviation connections, travel insurance, pet travel and driving licences.

They will also look to visit friends and family which augurs well for the long term future of British tourism to Ireland.'
