Tourism Offices Not Our Responsibility Shannon Heritage Says

Shannon Heritage says it’s down to Fáilte Ireland to operate tourist information offices and not them.

It’s in response to a call from Fianna Fáil Killaloe Councillor Tony O’Brien, who has accused the semi-state of abdicating on its responsibility to provide the service in the East Clare town.

While a service was previously operated in Killaloe by Shannon Heritage, the responsibility shifted to Fáilte Ireland.

 A spokesperson for Shannon Heritage said; “It would not be appropriate to comment on this issue as  Fáilte Ireland are Ireland’s tourism development body and are responsible for the operation and management of national tourist information network. As Ireland’s largest commercial operator of tourist attractions, Shannon Heritage  is mandated to manage and develop a portfolio of compelling visitor attractions to entice overseas and domestic visitors.”
