Greater autonomy needed for Killarney tourist office

The Killarney Tourist Office should be granted greater autonomy if Cork / Kerry tourism takes over marketing the entire county according to John Ahern of South West Walks. Mr Ahern says Cork – Kerry has no budget for the north of the county which is promoted by Shannon Development at the moment. He says if this situation is to change, the industry needs to ensure policy and budgets for the county are not dictated by the Cork office. Speaking on this mornings Kerry Today Mr Ahern said if amalgamation is to go ahead, the Killarney office should have more say.
