Brexit threatens links between Ireland and Britain, but a tourism initiative you may not have heard of could bring us closer together.

'Celtic Routes' is a new cross-border collaboration between six counties in Ireland and Wales, and it aims to tempt tourists into a slower type of travel.

Wicklow, Wexford and Waterford are the Irish counties; Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire their coastal counterparts across the Irish Sea.
