Swing on UK golf tourism drive

TRALEE-based golf holiday promotion group South West Ireland Golf (SWING) have joined Tourism Ireland in a major promotional drive aimed at increasing the number of UK based golfers visiting Ireland.

As part of the promotional effort representatives from SWING recently travelled to Wales to take part in Golf Live, a golf promotion which took place at Celtic Manor in Wales. About 13,000 British golf fans visited the show at which the SWING team spent three days highlighting the world-class golf courses in Kerry and Cork.

Tourism Ireland and golf partners from around the island of Ireland including several form Kerry also had a presence at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth last week.
