Ensuring Safety for Tourists who visit Ireland
Thursday, 26 November 2015

During the Order of Business in the Seanad, I said: As we heard earlier on today, we have had some very good tourist numbers. However, during the week, the US Government issued advice to its citizens warning them to be careful about where they travel. I want to make sure we take whatever steps we can to ensure that there is no fear among Americans who are thinking of coming here and that they feel very safe in Ireland. We hope they do...

I am not sure what we must do about it and how we draw attention to it. I know that ISIS has included Ireland in a list of 52 countries it is unhappy with.However, we should work on the issue and do something about it.

I am sure the Irish tourism industry is already working on that and doing whatever needs to be done.
