TV star Kathryn Thomas has thrown her support behind The Gathering, next year’s drive to encourage people to visit Ireland.

The seasoned traveller and former ‘No Frontiers’ presenter believes the initiative can tap into the enormous goodwill Ireland enjoys abroad and give the country a much- needed boost.

“Because of my involvement with No Frontiers over the years, I always saw myself and the crew as sort of ambassadors for Ireland,” she said.

“It never ceased to surprise me just how interested people are in Ireland and how much Ireland is on the global stage. Everywhere we went we met people who wanted to talk about Ireland and who had a connection and an interest in Ireland.”

Thomas made her comments in an interview for the Irish Independent’s magazine The Gathering, which is published in today’s newspaper. In a publishing first – the fantastic 32-page glossy magazine comes alive as an exciting digital publication on any PC, smartphone or tablet device.
