Hoteliers seek travel easing

Hoteliers are calling on the Government to allow people to travel outside their county and to permit indoor dining in hotels, including for non-residents, as part of its reduced elainarestrictions for reopening society safely this December.

  Elaina Fitzgerald Kane, President of the Irish Hotels Federation  says these measures will ensure hotels can reopen in a safe and sustainable manner, while helping to provide safe, controlled environments for people during the festive season this year.
“It is clear that Christmas will be very different this year. Nonetheless there is still an expectation that people will be able to travel to family outside their county, and hotels can be an important part of the infrastructure in facilitating this safely. We are urging the Government to recognise the important role hotels can play as part of the solution for a safer Christmas.”

Clare T.D. Michael McNamara says that the preliminary design of a Greenway linking Limerick City with Clonlara, O'Briensbridge, Killaloe and Scariff will go to tender next weekmlmcnamara0320.

 Deputy McNamara said, “I have received confirmation from Waterways Ireland that a tender for the preliminary design of this project will be published next week.  It is hoped that a preliminary design will be produced in the first half of 2021.  This is welcome news for the communities involved particularly Clonlara and O'Briensbridge in terms of attracting tourists and providing a local community amenity.”
