Inishowen Tourism has received funding of €370,000 which will assist it in the promotion of tourism in the peninsula.

It will also mean the employment of five people full-time and one person part-time.

Siobhan Kelly Interim Manager for Inishowen Tourism said: “Funding like this will allow Inishowen to reach its full potential as a tourism destination,”

And she added: “I know 2015 is going to be a great year for the peninsula. Fáilte Ireland has predicted that there will be a 6% increase in overseas visitors for 2015 and we hope that Inishowen will capitalise on this increase.”

The funding comes from Pobal, a government initiative to support social and economic development.
