In addition to its importance for the horseracing industry, the Irish National Stud and its gardens are an important tourism attraction for County Kildare and Ireland. I know that Fáilte Ireland has been working with the National Stud, with a view to further enhancing its tourism offering, so I have asked Fáilte Ireland to provide the Deputy with further detail in this regard. Please contact my private office if you have not received a reply within ten working days.
