The new Irish Tourism Minister occupies the position in opportune time

Irish TourismAs per industry organizations, the new tourism minister faces the induction of fire as he must identify the importance of the problems caused by Brexit. It is being anticipated that Kerry South TD Brendan Griffin will be successful in managing the issues arising from declining UK numbers, Irish tourism’s biggest visitor bloc. Mr Griffin was selected Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism, and Sport in Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s reshuffle.


While the predecessor of Mr Griffin, Limerick TD Patrick O’Donovan was an extremely regarded name among tourism lobby groups, it is being expected that because Mr Griffin’s constituency is so tourism reliant, he may up the ante when it comes to undertaking the industry’s current Brexit headaches.


Mr Griffin is a previous member of Kerry County Council where he stood for Dingle, one of the country’s most well-liked tourist places.


The total number of UK tourists have dropped considerably ever since the Brexit vote in 2016 June along with the ever since pound falling which entails less spending money for visitors if they select Ireland as their destination. The number of visitors from Britain dropped by more than 10%, to 866,000, between February and April this year in comparison to the same time last year, according to CSO figures.
