Let's not disgust tourists with our litter
I agree entirely with media reports that tourism is one area that can lead to growth and help mend Ireland's damaged reputation abroad.
Ireland is streets ahead in terms of the friendliness of our people and the quality of our hotels, food and drink.
Where we let ourselves down is the disgraceful condition of our grass verges, ditches, walkways and beaches. Ireland is filthy and the standard in the rest of Europe puts us to shame.
