The free to download eBook will feature images and footage from the entire three day visit of Giro d'Italia from Belfast to Dublin, however there will be particular attention given to Dundalk, and Louth's efforts, with the aim of increasing tourism awareness of the county throughout the 51 countries the book will be available in.

Thousands lined the streets and roads of the county to cheer on Giro d'Italia, it was a huge community effort and something epublish.ie wanted to get involved with, founder Clive Friary said.

'We want to create an eBook that will suit keen cycling fans throughout the world as well as promote our area, cycling routes etc. Ideally it would be fantastic to see keen cyclists downloading the book, seeing the route, and arranging their cycling holidays here,' said Mr. Friary.

'We are making it a free to download publication to get it to as big an audience as possible'.

Clive is asking anyone with Giro images, footage, etc., to join in the project and have their photographs and recordings included.

'We've all seen some fantastic photos from the streets of Dundalk or along the road at Castlebellingham, or across the Bridge of Peace at Drogheda. We want to let the eBook readers see how Giro grabbed the attention of the general public and the atmosphere it created,' said Mr. Friary. 'We want to harness that feeling for the good of Dundalk and Louth and create future potential for the region. All work featured will be credited'.
