It also afforded us the opportunity to discuss the extensive promotional programme which Tourism Ireland is undertaking around the world this year, to build on the success of 2015 and continue to grow overseas visitor numbers to the island of Ireland. Priority markets are Great Britain, the United States, Germany and France, but our promotions are also continuing in other key markets across the world – including Northern Europe, Southern Europe, Australia and New Zealand, as well as new and emerging markets like China and India.”

 

Co Louth, its events, heritage and visitor attractions, as well as many other aspects of this part of Ireland, feature prominently in Tourism Ireland’s promotions around the world.

Louth is also highlighted through Tourism Ireland’s social media platforms – to its 3.6 million active Facebook fans and 346,000+ followers on Twitter.

 

In 2015, Tourism Ireland helped generate about €3.4 million worth of positive publicity for Louth in key markets around the world, through press releases, press visits, e-newsletters and various media events.
