Fáilte Ireland has welcomed the Government’s recognition of the very serious challenges facing the tourism sector in the event of a no-deal Brexit. main image
“The allocation in Budget 2020 of €40million for the tourism industry in a no-deal Brexit scenario is a significant investment.  This will allow us to intensify our work to develop and support the tourism sector while also enhancing Ireland’s appeal as a tourist and conference destination,” according to Paul Kelly CEO of Fáilte Ireland.
“We also acknowledge the €7million supplementary tourism fund provided by Government for the remainder of 2019. We will immediately use the €1million allocation to Fáilte Ireland to support tourism businesses along the border counties,” added Paul Kelly. 
 “It is worth noting that Fáilte Ireland’s operating budget was increased last year by just over €7million by Government and this allowed us to provide more business supports, investment and mentoring, particularly along the border counties as we help prepare the sector for Brexit.”
