Duty calls

• I would like to correct an assertion made by Enda Cormican in a letter regarding my official seven-day visit to the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

The purpose of the visit was to promote Ireland as a tourism destination, pursue trade and investment opportunities, and facilitate Irish businesses through a series of meetings with officials in both countries.

I travelled economy class to the Middle East, and returned a week later on the inaugural Emirates flight from Dubai to Dublin as a guest of the airline.
