TOURIST de­vel­op­ment in west Wick­low is be­ing hotly tipped to take off by a man who should know - Min­is­ter for Tourism and Trade, Char­lie McCreevy, from neigh­bour­ing Kil­dare.

The Min­is­ter says that he be­lieves the range and qual­ity of tourism prod­ucts on of­fer in west Wick­low, on the doorstep of a mil­lion Dublin­ers, will help to cor­rect the im­bal­ance in tourism for­tunes be­tween east and west Wick­low.

‘ The ex­is­tence of these at­trac­tions is bound to en­cour­age greater in­vest­ment in hol­i­day ac­com­mo­da­tion at ev­ery level - some­thing that is needed in west Wick­low if tourism is to ex­pand in line with its po­ten­tial,’ said Min­is­ter McCreevy.

He made his com­ments on Mon­day af­ter­noon at the of­fi­cial launch of a 78 seat cruiser, the MV Bless­ing­ton, on the Bless­ing­ton Lakes in the lat­est tourism ven­ture to be launched in the area.
