Wild Atlantic Way gets new tourist signage

New signs featuring local tourism points of interest have been rolled out along the Wild Atlantic Way.

It’s the next stage in the promotion of the popular route which is now in its fourth season.

A new information feature at Mullaghmore has been put up in the last six weeks – it recounts the history of Lord Mountbatten who was killed by an IRA bomb off the coast of this scenic area in north Sligo in the 1970s.

That event led his nephew Prince Charles to visit the area for the first time in 2015.

These are among the events being highlighted on the new information points to encourage people to explore the local areas further.

Failte Ireland says most of them are now in place along the Wild Atlantic Way from Cork all the way up to Donegal.
