'Telegraph' features Dublin

 An article in the Daily Telegraph is highlighting Dublin to British holidaymakers. The article is part of a Tourism Ireland campaign which has been running throughout 2017 – with 


a series of articles about the island of Ireland featuring in the Saturday travel section of The Daily Telegraph, which is read by 1.4 million people across Britain.
 The article  is titled “How Dublin offers a feast for the senses”. It’s a personal reflection piece by author Neil Hegarty, who writes that the city “has so much to offer visitors looking for art, culture and good food”. It mentions the culinary delights to be found around Dublin and features wonderful photos of the Ha’penny Bridge and the Phoenix Park.

Doyle profit falls

The Doyle Collection increased its turnover by €2 million last year in spite of the impact of sterling and dollar translations on its euro-denominated accounts.
Figures for Doyle Hotels (Holdings) Ltd show that the group recorded turnover of €135 million last year, up from €133 million in 2015.
This was in spite of the impact of sterling’s decline  and a weaker dollar. 
The accounts also show that the hotel group’s after-tax profit fell last year to €5.6 million from €31.1 million in 2015. This was due to the impact of a revaluation of its properties.
Its operating profit from continuing operations reduced to just under €15 million from €52.7 million in 2015.

Promoting Sligo in Brussels

Representatives of the tourism industry in Sligo and the Wild Atlantic Way visited Brussels, to
