Mayo – The heartbeat of the Wild Atlantic Way
The Ireland Golf Tour Operators Association (IGTOA) annual conference concluded on Monday 20th October with its Gala evening and Awards ceremony. Speaking to delegates and distinguished guests, which included An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny and Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring, the IGTOA chairman, Denis Keane, remarked that the Mayo region was well aware of the importance of Golf Tourism and he hoped that bringing the conference to the region “will be of benefit to all in the golf industry and related tourism sectors.”
In his response, Mayo County Council Chief Executive, Peter Hynes, positioned Mayo as the heartbeat of the Wild Atlantic Way and identified Golf as having a major role to play within this setting. “We have the longest coastline of any county in the country and Golf fits ideally into what we are looking at” he said. “This conference is an important opportunity to showcase the entire North West region,” Peter continued, “We have direct access through Ireland West Airport Knock into the heart of some of the best golfing territory to be found anywhere.”
