TramoreBeach2Anyone that tries to ‘sell’ their locality, to promote it to the outside world and encourage people to visit deserves enormous credit. And to do so during an economic trough is all the more admirable and all the more challenging.
Promotion of this kind brings people of the calibre of Billy Colfer (The Hook), Mary Houlihan (Lismore), Maria Kyte (Kilmeaden Railway) and Patsy Fitzgerald (Carrick-on-Suir) to mind.
Through our mountains, beaches, forests, rivers and historical sites, amenities and storytellers, we’ve got something special to share with domestic and international tourists.
After all, it’s not just Kerry, Wicklow, West Cork and Donegal that does scenery, great food and good times: we’ve got it all right here.
Getting visitors to look beyond these admittedly wonderful other areas is the focus of ‘the sell’, and it’s incumbent upon politicians, business leaders and promotional bodies to leave no PR stone unturned.
Kevin O’Sullivan is a young man who clearly merits reference on any such list of those seeking to let prospective visitors in on what we who live in the south east are already aware of.
Via ‘Discover Tramore’, which Kevin established a couple of years ago; he’s doing his bit to sell Tramore and its environs to a market he feels has yet to be truly tapped into.
“Tramore has got so much going for it,” he tells The Munster Express, looking out onto the town’s famed strand from the confines of The Majestic Hotel.
