Declaring it a great day for Longford and the Midlands, Mr Varadkar was presented with a hand carved wooden bowl by Center Parcs CEO Martin Dalby.

The day was ‘topped’ off with some fine dining snacks and a relaxed viewing of the facilities at Center Parcs Longford Forest which is located at Newcastle Wood, Ballymahon. We captured some footage, which you can watch above.  

P.S. It looks amazing!
