People power is all-important

WHEN visitors to Kerry and other parts of Ireland reflect on their holidays, it’s the people they remember more than the food, the service or the scenery, Kerry Fine Gael TD, Brendan Griffin, told the AIB Let’s Talk Tourism forum.

He said the interaction with friendly local people is the main attraction and the calibre of frontline staff in the Kerry hotel industry is second to none, just as it has been for the past 40 years or more.
