Tourism Ireland is also rolling out a new ‘twinning’ initiative this year, which involves overseas markets ‘twinning with’ a specific region or area in Ireland. Great Britain is ‘twinning’ with Donegal and Derry, so Tourism Ireland in Great Britain is placing a special focus on the North-West in 2022. It’s an exciting time for Irish tourism!
