IFA WELCOMES FUNDING FOR AGRI-FOOD TOURISM PROJECTS

Countryside, Environment & Rural Affairs

IFA Deputy President Brian Rushe has welcomed today’s funding announcement by the Department of Agriculture for a number of agri-food tourism projects.

It follows IFA’s call for people holidaying at home this summer (while adhering to the Government’s Covid-19 roadmap) to consider a stay on one of the many farm guesthouses around the country.

Ireland’s tourism sector will begin to re-open next month and many people are beginning to consider staycations around the country.

Brian Rushe said, “Grants such as these contribute to the development of a vibrant agri-tourism sector. Rural Ireland has been hard hit as a result of Covid-19, so these monies are badly needed. I urge Minister Creed to ensure they are paid out without any delay.”
