Rural tourism info meeting

Naul Community Council is reaching out to its neighbouring communities to present a united front in building rural tourism.

To that end, the community council is to host a Rural Tourism Information Evening on Tuesday, September 12 at 7.30pm at Naul Community Centre.

The organisation wants to hear from anyone with a rural tourism business idea and invites everyone along to hear from experts in the field.

Some of the ideas up for discussion include self-catering accommodation, glamping, trails and outdoor activities, heritage projects and more.

Speakers will include experts from Fingal County Council, Fingal Leader, Fingal LEO, White Finn Construction and Teagasc.

According to a spokesperson for Naul Community Council, the village is already working with its neighbours in Ballyboughal, Oldtown, Balscadden and Rolestown on developing rural tourism.

Naul Community Council now wants to open the discussion up further to neighbouring communities in places like Clonalvy, Ardcath and Bellewstown and make this a cross-border effort that extends beyond Fingal.

The community council is using a Teagasc booklet on developing rural tourism as its template for moving forward and hope that this information evening will provide some inspiration and spark ideas that will bring more tourists to the rural villages of Fingal.

All are welcome.
