Formerly from Newtown, Rathangan, Aine has huge knowledge in hospitality and golf sector along with sales and marketing both nationally and internationally after remaining associated with all the major management companies across the globe.
She has worked with Loch Lomond Golf Club in Scotland, the Grove near London (managed by Troon Golf), Riffa/Royal Golf Club in Bahrain (managed by Gleneagles Golf Development) and with Forte Hotels.
Aine had worked with Carton House which was established in the Dublin East Coast Golf Alliance. Aine is also the Irish representative for the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO).
To quote Aine, “I am very proud and excited to take up this role in promoting County Kildare where I am from and live. I am fortunate to have a great Board of Directors to work with to deliver Kildare Tourism’s 2020 Vision. Tourism plays a major part in the economy of the county, with over 550 enterprises involved in accommodation and food services in Kildare employing 5,500 people. Our goal at Kildare Failte, is to oversee and support the creation of an additional 1,500 direct and indirect jobs within the hospitality and tourism across the county by the end of 2020.”
Aine explains that tourism in Kildare has become kind of everyone’s business and that its closeness to Dublin provides important opportunities to make bigger the current tourism related contribution of the county via the Into Kildare brand.
