Angling workshop

Tarmonbarry will be the setting this evening (Wednesday) for a special workshop, entitled 'Building Angling Tourism Potential'

A workshop has been organised for this evening Wednesday, February 21 in Keenan's Hotel, Tarmonbarry, at 6pm, on the topic of 'Building Angling Tourism Potential'.

Failte Ireland estimates that over 130,000 overseas visitors to Ireland in 2016 engaged in angling.
Leitrim, Longford, Roscommon and Cavan have an abundance of river stretches and lakes to offer angling tourists.

The workshop will explore opportunities to maximise the potential for attracting angling tourists to the region.

It will include presentations from Inland Fisheries Ireland and Waterways Ireland to give an overview on potential selling points for the counties, supports available and how to market to angling tourists.

With an outstanding reputation for angling, the region has a distinctive offering for tourists. The workshop is targeted at accommodation and activity providers from across the region.

It is free of charge but booking is required. Contact Rebecca Farrell on usefe@leitrimcoco.ie
