Tourist walk an important step

TOURISM is worth €1.6bn to Dublin annually and is one of the main drivers of the economic recovery in the capital since the crash.

The planned Dubline tourist walk, from Trinity College to Kilmainham jail, is vital to develop and safeguard the city's position as a tourist spot.

The provision of €625,000 for attractions on the route is welcome.

Tourism is something Dublin does well – and Dubline will add to this.
