My Department's role in relation to tourism is primarily concerned with national policy and the State Tourism agencies, under the aegis of the Department, deal with the operation and administration of that policy, including regional tourism development.   

In this respect, Fáilte Ireland works with local authorities to maximise the tourism potential of their respective regions.  I have referred the Deputy's question to Fáilte Ireland for further information in this regard.  Please contact my private office if a reply is not received within ten working days.
