OK for Tayto Park Roller Coaster

Tayto Park has been given the go-ahead to add two new steel rollercoasters.

taytopk0320The intertwining rollercoasters had to be redesigned to get the project over the line after objections from local homeowners about screaming thrill-seekers.

The park said in a statement that it has spent over €1.5m on noise reduction methods to secure planning.
Construction is set to begin in 2021 and the rides will be open to the public in 2023.
The statement added that they represent a total investment of €15m by the park and will create 40 new jobs in the area.
Tayto Park announced earlier this week that it will re-open on Monday, June 29.

Room Rate Fall predicted

Room rates will fall below €100 as soon-to-reopen hotels struggle to fill a third of rooms this year, according to the Irish Hotels Federation.
Its 2020 forecast, produced by consultants Crowe and reflecting the views of 126 hotels, warns that most - 53pc - have enough cash to cover only three more months of inactivity. Nine out of ten have asked their banks for more finance or loan renegotiations, with nearly half seeking full payment moratoriums.
While the Government's extension of wage subsidies to the end of August delays hotels' potential point of insolvency by about two months, Crowe said, it remains questionable whether many hotels could survive the low season running to March 2021.
 Crowe partner Aiden Murphy said the lack of any credible path for hotels to trade profitably this summer meant that half "could run out of money in the months ahead" - unless the State intervenes with more supports.
