Failte Ireland welcomes Tourism Budget

Fáilte Ireland has welcomed  the tourism specific and wider economic measures announced in Budget 2022. budget1021

CEO of the National Tourism Development Authority, Paul Kelly says “the record level of funding for the tourism sector secured by Minister Catherine Martin TD will make a positive impact on the recovery and economic growth of the industry and individual tourism businesses.”  
“Tourism continues to be one of the sectors hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and while the long-term view is hopeful and positive, the short-term outlook is uncertain as a solid return of overseas visitors is not expected until the second half of 2022. The overall financial package secured by the Minister responds to the significant challenges that remain for the sector. The funding provided and initiatives announced reflect the Government’s ongoing commitment to protect the tourism industry’s productive capacity and ability to recover from the crisis. These supports will help in reducing the risk that otherwise vulnerable-but-viable SMEs become insolvent and, ultimately, will benefit the Government's future fiscal position, notwithstanding the short-term costs,” added Paul Kelly.

Court Clears Hellfire Centre

A residents' group has failed to get permission to appeal the High Court’s decision not to overturn planning permission for a €15m visitor centre at the Hell Fire Club in the Dublihellfireclub0620n mountains.
Mr Justice Richard Humphreys upheld the permission earlier this year but referred certain issues of EU law to the Court of Justice of the EU.
However, he ruled that these issues did not impact on the validity of the permission.
Today, he said the residents had not raised a point of law of exceptional public importance to allow an appeal over his ruling, clearing the way for the centre to go ahead.
