Tourism NI is responsible for the development of tourism and the marketing of Northern Ireland as a tourist destination to visitors within Northern Ireland and from the Republic of Ireland.
A radio documentary about Devlins' Yellowman which aired last week on West Limerick 102FM is now available to download in time for this year's Auld Lammas Fair.
‘Devlins' Yellowman - A Taste of Childhood’ was produced by Sharon Noonan with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
Originally from Ballymena, Sharon is the elder daughter of Tony and Elizabeth Devlin and moved to Limerick 10 years ago. It was during a visit to a Co Limerick restaurant that her interest in Yellowman was reignited.
"My parents were down for a few days and we went to the Mustard Seed in Ballingarry for dinner," explained Sharon. "Yellowman was listed on the petits fours menu and I was intrigued. What was served was what I know as honeycomb and after asking chef John Fitzmaurice about it, I started wondering about why honeycomb had adopted the name of Yellowman."
Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council has recently commissioned the development of a Tourism Development and Marketing Strategy and Action Plan to 2022 with the objective of growing the industry within the council area. This work is being undertaken by Michael Williams, ASM and Professor Terry Stevens, Stevens & Associates.
Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre is moving a short walk away from its existing premises opposite the Ulsterbus depot in Enniskillen to the new state-of-the-art Visitor Centre at Enniskillen Castle.
The Visitor Information Centre, which is a service provided by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and is part of Tourism NI’s Visitor Information Centre network, will close at 5pm today (Wednesday 24 August) and reopen at 9.30am tomorrow (Thursday 25 August) in the purpose-built Visitor Centre at Enniskillen Castle.
The move to Enniskillen Castle will enable visitors to enjoy enhanced facilities including self-service touch screens; access to a genealogy service and Fermanagh County Museum’s archives; café and shop. These new services are in addition to those currently available which include information on things to do and eating out; accommodation bookings, ticket sales for local events, and the purchase of canal cards, fishing licences and permits.
