Global media get a taste of Kerry tourism

The fine weather of last week came at a most opportune time for Fáilte Ireland’s hosting of a group of international media from the US, Canada, India and Europe which was brought on a trip around the southern peninsulas and islands of Ireland on a promotional venture conducted in association with Tourism Ireland.

The Kerry segment of the tour took in a display of falconry provided by Geofrey O’Donoghue at the Sheen Falls Lodge in Kenmare and a demonstration of the art of sheepdog mustering by Noel Kissane at his farm on Moll’s Gap.
