Wicklow/East Carlow Fianna Fáil TD, Pat Casey has welcomed the announcement of funding by Failte Ireland towards the visitor attractions at the historic site at Glendalough.
“This funding is most welcome. Glendalough is probably the 2nd most visited tourism location in Ireland. We need to see investments such as that announced today to ensure that the visitor experience is world class. There will need to be further investments in my view to ensure that Glendalough and Laragh can continue to accommodate the ever growing visitor numbers while retaining the unique beauty of the area.”
“The tourism industry in Wicklow is one of our most vital economic areas and all investment in improving the visitor experience at any site in the County is to be welcomed.”
