Tourism is way out of cri­sis claim mem­bers

Bray People - - News -

TOURISM IS the best way to lift the county out of eco­nomic freefall ac­cord­ing to cer­tain mem­bers of Wick­low County Coun­cil.

Cllr. Ciaran O’Brien said that the tourism po­ten­tial of the county is not be­ing max­imised while Cllr. Tom For­tune said the Coun­cil ‘was only scratch­ing the sur­face with what we are do­ing’.

He said in dif­fi­cult times the coun­cil needed to fo­cus on dif­fer­ent ac­tions.

Cllr. Jimmy O’Shaugh­nessy said that all the ho­tels, bed and break­fasts and self-ca­ter­ing places in the county were in se­ri­ous dif­fi­culty be­cause of high wa­ter charges and this needed to be ad­dressed.

Some coun­cil­lors be­lieve that tourism is the way to lift the econ­omy.
