Leitrim Cllr says Transport Minister ‘needs a geography lesson’ as county is included in new tourism initative

A Co Leitrim Cllr has said that it is ‘ludicrous’ that the county has been included in a new tourism initiative and not been added to the Wild Atlantic Way.

Yesterday Failte Ireland launched a new tourism initiative called ‘Hidden Heartlands’.

It will cover an area that runs from Leitrim’s coastline through East Clare, Longford Roscommon, East Galway, as well as parts of Westmeath, Cavan, North Tipperary and Offaly.

Fianna Fail Cllr Justin Warnock says being included in the initiative will actually damage tourism in Leitrim….
