Brand photos needed for Celtic Routes project

Photographs that capture unsung attractions in Wexford and Wales are sought by Wexford County Council to assist with the branding of a €2 million project called Celtic Routes.

The County Council which is the lead partner on this side of the water in the initiative that also involves Wicklow and Waterford county and city local authorities, is tendering for photography services to make the brand publicly visible.

The photography should capture the essence of the project which aims to encourage visitors to explore new areas of Ireland and Wales.

The closing date is 4 p.m. on August 13 and more information is available from Oonagh Messette, Celtic Routes Project Officer at Wexford County Council on or telephone 053 9196698.

The project hopes to transform less well known areas of Wexford, Wicklow, Waterford and Wales through the development of new trails linking local culture, heritage and the natural environment.

The aim is to increase the visitor attraction of these areas by offering authentic Celttic experiences and changing them from transit zones to destinations in their own right, thereby boosting the local economy.

The total budget for the project over its lifetime is €1,989,687.00 with the project partners on the Welsh side being Carmarthenshire County Council in partnership with Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and Ceredigion County Council.

People involved in the tourism sector in Wexford, Waterford and Wicklow are invited to become part of Celtic Routes by submitting content for the website and related social media campaign. There is no cost to take part and all businesses that align with the project's aims and ethos will be welcomed.
