Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE most pop­u­lar travel TV show in Italy, Kil­i­man­giaro, which has more than 1.2 mil­lion view­ers per episode, has been film­ing in County Wex­ford and across Ire­land’s An­cient East.

Tourism Ire­land in Mi­lan, in con­junc­tion with Fáilte Ire­land, in­vited cam­er­a­woman An­napia Chico to come and ex­plore Ire­land’s An­cient East for the Kil­i­man­giaro show, which airs on the na­tional TV sta­tion, RAI Tre. She filmed at Hook Light­house on a sunny day, Satur­day, Au­gust 19, and the re­sult­ing pro­gramme will air to­wards the end of this year.

Ni­amh Kin­sella, Tourism Ire­land’s man­ager Italy, said: ‘We are de­lighted that the Kil­i­man­giaro TV show filmed in County Wex­ford and Ire­land’s An­cient East.

‘It’s the kind of pub­lic­ity that money sim­ply could not buy and a su­perb way to high­light County Wex­ford to more than 1.2 mil­lion Ital­ian trav­ellers, po­si­tion­ing it as a highly de­sir­able place to visit.’

Ms Kin­sella said 2016 was the best year ever for tourism from Italy to Ire­land, when the coun­try wel­comed 336,000 Ital­ian vis­i­tors, up 8 per cent on 2015.
