NISRA reports 8pc rise in overseas visitors & other news from Ireland’s tourism industry


Clare County Council secured a High Court injunction restraining the use of a portacabin office at Doolin Harbour for the sale of ferry tickets on the grounds that it had been erected without planning permission. Justice David Keane granted the order on Thursday and placed a one-week stay on the injunction coming into effect to allow sea and coastal ferry-owners Dick Grant and his company, Sarahfenn Limited, and Liam O’Brien and his company, Baid Farantoireachta an Chosta Teoranta, to secure another location.
