Tourism Ireland arranged for journalists from media outlets like The Daily Telegraph and The Independent to attend the opening night of Rooms – an interactive stage performance written by Enda Walsh – at the Barbican. After the performance, the journalists had the opportunity to meet playwright Enda Walsh, as well as John Crumlish and Paul Fahy of the Galway International Arts Festival.
