Finding Lough Derg

The Mid-West Regional Authority is seeking tenders for developing a “Signage Audit & Strategy for the Lough Derg Destination Area”.

The strategy is to cover

the Lough Derg Destination Area from Portumna to Ballina/Killaloe including the major settlements within this boundary incorporating both sides of Lough Derg ….

It involves auditing existing signposts within three miles of Lough Derg, consulting “key stakeholders” and developing a new signposting plan for the region. The new signage is to guide visitors to and through the Lough Derg Destination Area, to benefit the “local host community” and to provide a “comprehensive, branded, co-ordinated signage strategy for the Lough Derg Destination Area which will also inform and direct signage in the future”.

 

 

 

Mid Shannon Corridor Tourism subsidy

 

I have been trying for some time to find out whether anyone has taken advantage of the Mid-Shannon Corridor Tourism Infrastructure Investment Scheme. I sent this email to the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport in July 2011; I received no reply, so I have sent it again today.

Your website’s list of contacts does not include an email address for the section of your department that deals with tourism [it still doesn’t, on 1 Novemebr 2011], so I would be grateful if you would pass this query to the appropriate person.

I have some questions about the Mid-Shannon Corridor Tourism Infrastructure Investment Scheme. I would be grateful if you could tell me how many applications for approval in principle have been received.

Could I have a list of the applicants and their proposals please?

How many applications have been approved?

Could I have a list of them please?

On how many projects has expenditure been incurred?

Could I have a list of them please?

Consultancy fee? No, it’s OK, thanks ….
