Plans to promote tourism get the hoof
Plans to promote County Wexford at horse shows got the hoof from Cllr Robbie Ireton.
CEO Tom Enright said Visit Wexford has agreed to attend four horse shows in 2018 in Balmoral, Bloom, The Horse Show and The Ploughing Championships. It was agreed that Visit Wexford will not attend Holiday World in 2018.
Cllr Ireton said people going to horse shows are 'on holidays' and have no interest in looking at holiday trade stands. He said Visit Wexford should go to Holiday world. 'It's a very important one for Wexford. 80 per cent of the people coming to Wexford are from Dublin. A lot of people from the east coast holiday in Galway. Why don't they come here?'
