Tourism Ireland Welcomes Additional €6 Million In Budget 2020

Welcoming the additional funding allocated to Tourism Ireland in Budget 2020, Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “We very much welcome the additional €6 million which has been allocated to Tourism Ireland – to be used for promotional campaigns between now and the end of 2019. The additional funding will allow us to roll out strong end-of-year campaigns, which will deliver a message of reassurance to prospective visitors around the world. Our Brexit research indicates a heightened risk of consumers postponing trips, due to uncertainty. This funding will also complement our existing programme of activity for Q4, allowing us to undertake kick-start campaigns in our key markets, to position us well for 2020.”

“We also welcome the announcement of a separate fund of €40 for tourism, in the event of a no-deal Brexit. We hope that this fund won’t be necessary but it demonstrates the Government’s continued commitment to Irish tourism in these extraordinary times.”
