Park may close until 2021

The owner of Tayto Park hopes that the theme park will reopen in August - but fears that it may not until April 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.taytopk0320

Prior to the Covid-19 emergency, Tayto Park owner Raymond Coyle had pencilled in this Saturday for the reopening of the park, which generates around €19m in revenues per annum and attracts over 500,000 visitors.
Mr Coyle said in an interview that he hoped that the park may be in a position to reopen in August but conceded that it may now be the following April.
He said Tayto Park has already stalled the recruitment of 360 seasonal workers for the park's peak summer months.
He said that he was not qualified to say when the park would reopen.
"We will have to be guided by the HSE, Government and the developments around the coronavirus," he said.


Tayto Park employs 78 year-round workers who are engaged in feeding the animals there, maintenance of the rides and attractions, and office work.
Mr Coyle said that workforce will remain in place.
