On Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, two vehicle attacks took place in Spain that left 13 people dead and more than 100 people injured.
A vehicle had ploughed into a crowd on Las Ramblas that is one of the busiest streets of Barcelona. Seven more people were injured after another vehicle attack inside the beautiful resort town of Cambrils at a short distance towards the southern part of Barcelona during Thursday dawn.
Spain was always a favorite destination for Irish vacationers.
In the wake of the recent terror attacks in Barcelona, the Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) is collaborating with its members all across Ireland to support holidaymakers in the region of Barcelona and the neighbouring areas. The ITAA have urged the vacationers to be extremely cautious and follow every word of advice of the local authorities and said that they might be confronting with a few disruptions and delays.
Corman Meehan who is the President of ITAA said that they are very sad ever since the news of the terror attack in Barcelona broke out.
Ireland and Spain have been important tourist partners for many years.
This year as many as two million Irish citizens would be visiting Spain, making it the most favored holiday destination of Ireland.
