South Sligo Tourism, a community and business initiative in the area, has launched its first brochure.
Entitled ‘Secrets,’ its theme is the ‘hidden gems to treasured destinations’ in the area.
The aim of the brochure is to showcase and unveil the hidden secrets and treasures of south and west Sligo.
Cllr. Paul Taylor, Chairman, South Sligo Tourism, says the brochure is the first, tangible step towards achieving the group’s aim.
In addition to detailing the many tourist attractions, the brochure also contains a comprehensive map and full calendar of events for 2017, including a weekly Irish music session guide.
The launch itself took place in historic Temple House, near Ballymote, with soaring birds of prey from the nearby Eagles Flying centre outside
The lawn was an unusual home for the kayaks of Wild Wet Adventures, which are usually on nearby Temple House lake.
Inside, other local attractions showcased their wares including Woodlands Equestrian Centre, Tubbercurry Golf Club and Beltra Country Market.
The REDZ (Rural Economic Development Zone) project 2016, led by Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce and Sligo County Council, helped set up the South Sligo Tourism Group.
