A warning for dear old Ireland

THE recent report, 'Tourism disaster for Ireland' (Irish Independent, February 23) didn't really move me until I saw an ad last night on German TV from the Irish tourist board.

The premise was a pair of hapless Germans getting picked up by an Irish fisherman and brought around to see the secret pub on the island.

Word of mouth is a powerful thing and the Germans I know who have been to Ireland come back saying it is too expensive, that there is a major problem with public transport in Dublin and they had difficulty actually finding any Irish working in the pubs and hotels they visited.
