Businesses and government promote the Isle of Man in Ireland

THE Isle of Man was represented at the largest ever holiday show to be held in Ireland.


The Holiday World Show in Dublin had 50,000 visitors at the weekend.


The Isle of Man stand was manned by representatives from the government's tourism division, the Sefton Group, Manx2 and the Steam Packet Company who were on hand to speak to potential visitors about what the Island has to offer.


There was also a competition to win a short break.


Sefton Group sales manager Naomi Finch said: "We were delighted by how busy the stand was throughout the three days.


"We spoke to lots of people who hadn't visited the Island for many years who wanted to come back and relive those happy memories and see how much it has changed.


"There were also a surprising number of people who have never visited before, despite the short journey across the Irish Sea.


"I also attended last weekend's Holiday World Show in Belfast, with my colleague Sian Rose, so we're hoping to welcome lots of visitors from the adjacent Isle, and elsewhere, in the coming months."
