New tourism strategy on the way for Longford
Deputy Peter Burke, Fine Gael TD for Longford Westmeath, has confirmed that a new large-scale tourism strategy will be launched for Longford and the midlands by early next year.
The Chartered Accountant said that after a number of meetings with Fáilte Ireland representatives, he received confirmation today that a timeframe has been set for the launch for the strategy, which is being tested on an ongoing basis in the region.
“Tourism is a huge economic boost to our towns, and Longford needs a more suitable platform to showcase what we have to offer,” he said.
