Brexit Won't Impact On New Tourist Project Between Wales And East And South Coast Of Ireland

An international project involving local authorities in Wicklow, Wexford and Waterford with their counterparts in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion in Wales has been launched today.

It's backed by 2 million euro in EU funding.

The objective is to increase the visitor appeal of the targeted areas, including through the development of new trails linking local culture, heritage and the natural environment. The Celtic Routes project will run until December 2020.

Today’s launch in the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy, County Wexford, was attended by representatives from the three Irish local authorities along with the Welsh Councils as well as TDs, Councillors, Business, Tourism and other representatives.

Brexit will not impact on a new tourism initiative between three Irish and Welsh counties, according to organisers.

It comes after concerns were raised recently about the effects it could have on two million euro worth of EU funding.

The Celtic Routes project's aimed at increasing the visitor appeal of the areas, which include Wicklow, Wexford and Waterford.

However, officials have confirmed the funding, which will run until December 2020, won't be affected.
